Ascent Trip Report

Breaking in new boots. Trailhead on rt.171 start 0700. easy for first 1.5 miles then tipped up a bit. Snow on ground starting at 2000ft and progressively deeper until the ridge line where it was 2-4". followed VERY fresh moose tracks up to Black Snout, then an ez carriage ? road over to Mt Shaw. don't skip this great little climb - there's a good reason why its on the 52 with a view list. could see the sun reflecting off the ocean in the neighborhood of York ME and from Shaw, Franconia Ridge and Pres topped with lenticulars
