Route: Bald Ledge Trail

There was a breakable crust of ice over maybe 1/2 inch of granular from yesterday's storm. Snowpack in woods was maybe 3 inches. A few short open areas of wetness in the usual places.

I barebooted roundtrip without issue, but there is adequate cover to snowshoe or nordic ski.
