|Lost and Found:
||Snowshoes car to car. Cardigan Mountain Road was heavily traveled by skiers, snowshoers, and barebooters (human and moose). Same for West Ridge Trail although skiers diverge from hiking trail in a few spots. Two ahead of us did a good job of rototilling a nice snowshoe track, but we smoothed it out a bit on our descent.|
We kept snowshoes on all the way to the summit, usually finding enough snow on which to walk, but others might prefer switching to spikes. Was cold and windy but oh so beautiful up there!
