Comments
Comments: Took AT up and down, skipped the eyebrow - really nice undercast, though we did not climb the firetower. Trail was broken but a little loose, wore snowshoes all day. Some areas of postholing on the lower half of the trail, but there doesn't seem to be any shortage of snow. Lots of heavy snow-laden trees overhanging the trail, a little difficult to navigate those without getting wet - luckily a very warm day with no wind
