Route: Access road, (Fort Mountain), access road

Access road plowing was in progress, so I wore snowshoes. About half a foot of drifted in snow, but the road should be plowed (until drifts reform) as of this evening. Hard to tell how much snow is in the woods now, as it's been blowing all over the place. Nonetheless, if venturing off the road, snowshoes would be a must.
