 Hale 2/6
Surprisingly enough, the trail was in decent shape.

The road to the trailhead is another matter.................
The road is covered in ice. There is decent, packed snow cover on most of both the edges of the road, but it's not very wide. The road got plowed in January, and it looks like it wasn't scraped down all the way to the road surface in the process. What was left behind is now ice. Traction on the bottom of your footware is wicked helpful.

The trail is mostly packed to a firm surface. Looks like someone skied it on Saturaday when is was really warm, which helped to smooth out previous post holes, tho a couple were still seen. Brook crossings were easy. There is also some evidence of limited use of the Lend a Hand Trail.

What fun you had! You don't let the forecast or the threat of snow hamper your hiking. I like that a lot and your trip report too. Thank you and please continue!

See you in the mountains.
:D

Hey there Cath, Jeff, and Drew! About 5 or 6 years ago a group of us did the winter road walk to Hale, on to the hut, and then to Zealand. On the way out many skiers looked back at us bare booting the road walk. The weight of the snow on our shoes made us all long for the end of this hike. As close to a death march in my book that I wish not to repeat.

Smoothies do make it all worth while.

Many smiles . . .
and many miles!
:D
