Ascent Trip Report

Fresh snow - a few inches at the trailhead, up to a foot or more near the peak. Stream crossings were all rock-hoppable, several steep sections on the way up - easy on the way down. Forecast was sketchy - but cleared enough to allow some views/sun from Noon peak, was cloudy/foggy for Jennings and Sandwich, but a great day. Had to break trail after Jennings Peak. Saw fresh moose tracks (and hair and blood!). Hiked with Emily - was lots of fun. Trail was easy to follow, a few blowdowns to walk around. Finished 8.5 miles in about 7 hours - breaking trail slowed us down.
