 Nancy 2-10-07
Date(s) Hiked: 2-10-07

Trails(s) Hiked: Nancy Pond, herd path

Total Distance: ~11

Difficulty: Very Hard

Conditions: Deep drifts by the pond, very steep snowy herd path

Special Required Equipment: Snowshoes

Trip Report:

donna, Pamola (kyle) and I (all of vftt) bagged this NEHH list peak on a pretty decent day. Wasn’t windy except at the pond. Snow was nice and fluffy. Trail was broken in up to the ponds but not beyond. The herd path itself was very well defined, but also VERY steep! There were some great views of stairs mtn (oh –that’s- why its called stairs mtn!). as well as a really neat frozen cascade along the way. We even found a tree arched over the trail in a most unusual way!

Great hike! Lots of vertical, but it doesn’t feel like it (except up the herd path).

hehe I don't want to spoil it for you :) but its listed on my website under "future hikes"

But that hike is being threatened by the major dumping or snow that is forecast for Wednesday :evil: So basically it would be like making a very challenging hike even more challenging!

Ahhhh, Vose eh!? Well, I suppose it had to come at some point. :lol: :wink:

Maybe you will get lucky and the snow will magically miss the whole Carrigain/Vose Spur area.....yeah I know, fat chance :twisted: . Good luck anyways!
