Route: Old Bridle Path

A balmy 3 degrees at the parking lot around 4PM...paging Al Gore! Maybe 6" of new powder, but hard to tell with the howling wind. Snowpack appeared to be about 18" in the woods.

Trail had a well packed snowshoe track all the way to the ledges. No activity on the adajcent trails since the storm.
