Comments
Comments: I hope folk wear snowshoes at least descending on this upcoming warm weekend. Not a lot of postholes on the warmer, lower section of Jerusalem Trail yet.
This was our third attempt on Ellen in two weeks. First failed as the LT was too soft to get north of Little Abe, and wiggling thru the limbs was slow. Second failed as we hiked south of App Gap and Theron Dean Shelter until my 18-year-old snowshoe broke. Success on the last full day of Winter!
