Ascent Trip Report

Very wet trail. Icy at the top. Partly cloudy and kinda windy on the summits. Pines / spruce on north side of Algonquin had significant frost on way up in the morning. Bare rock was icing over, especially in the still shaded spots.

I was definitely a bit underdressed. Compared to last weeks hikes where we were in short sleeves and sweating the whole time, this week I had a long sleeve thermal shirt on with my vest, and I never took my vest off. I had to borrow Dan's gloves because I didn't bring any of my own. I brought my winter head band and wore that most of the time.
