Route: Carriage Road, Gunstock Mountain Trail, (Gunstock Mountain)

Lower half of the trail was damp (appears it was raked or leaf blown, so not too slippery), while the upper half had lots of wet ledge. A few isolated patches of man made snow on the ski trails with snow guns hosed up for the brief snowmaking window.

Nice sunset from the ledges partway down the Gunstock Mountain Trail.
