Re: Tracks!

Very nice tour, vt_trees. If you had swapped snowshoes for tele skis with the elderly women they would have been way more impressed. I haven't completely given up on skiing yet, but have not been on skis since late February. BUT, back then it was still winter! AND, there happened to be a lot of snow...

Re: Cutler River Drainage to be Closed to Public Access

Love those tracks! Have been hiking with the dogs in the lowlands wearing an Indian pack filled with water. For physical conditioning. Like TH am on my local fire squad. Brush fire season is upon us. It’s completely crazy how as soon as you get a sunny day at this time of year brush fires break out....

Re: Tracks!

Oh my gosh, Dirk. That's disappointing. Great pic, though! I was in Nepal the first 2 weeks of March. https://photos.smugmug.com/Winter-19-20/XX-Mar-Nepal/i-74LxfPm/0/426ccea5/X2/IMG_5431-X2.jpg https://photos.smugmug.com/Winter-19-20/XX-Mar-Nepal/i-Mbdm64m/0/6c907725/M/IMG_5591-M.jpg https://photos...

Re: Tracks!

Love that gif, vtt! Conditions in central look better than east vt/west nh. Dirk, I may have been chasing your tracks around a day later. https://photos.smugmug.com/Winter-19-20/Feb-9-Full-Moon/i-BqXXcJM/0/04bc687b/X2/IMG_5051-X2.jpg https://photos.smugmug.com/Winter-19-20/Feb-9-Full-Moon/i-fxj2rjf/...

Re: Tracks!

That's a super sweet amount of snow, vt_trees! Particularly comes across in the video. Let there be schuss! I've never skijored, but have always thought that the 3 mile slog from Lincoln Woods TH to Franconia Brook Trail would be well-served by dog power. Sunday. https://photos.smugmug.com/Winter-19...

Re: Tracks!

I agree vt_trees, the rain of last week stiffened the base below 2000'-2300', but there's a fluff coat on that and definitely turns to be had. NH woods near me has less fluff than VT woods. Above 2K is mostly just snow. Pics from the wmnf the last two days/nights. Playing with a camera timer app, pl...

Re: Tracks!

Best time so far on the Butterfield loop last night. Didn't want to stop to take pics enroute, but I will say it was snowing lightly, a lot of fun, and slightly punishing. Lowest to highest point is only a 600' difference, but there's a fair amount of giving it up and gaining it back. Celebratory di...

Cold tour yesterday evening. https://photos.smugmug.com/Winter-19-20/Jan-20-PWP/i-zRS7Zx4/0/4bda39d9/XL/IMG_4662-XL.jpg https://photos.smugmug.com/Winter-19-20/Jan-20-PWP/i-XGv67M4/0/b4b6af64/M/IMG_4672-M.jpg I was toasty, working to climb and clear deadfall. https://photos.smugmug.com/Winter-19-20/...
