Mount Marshall


A nice crisp morning started the day. I'm not sure what the temps were but everything was still frozen solid.

We signed in at 7am and tested the trail just beyond the sign in, and decided it was a go to use micro-spikes until Calamity Brook lean-to as it was a solid base.

We switched over to our snowshoes to cross over flowed lands and they would stay on the rest of the day.

The trail up Marshall is well packed out and any false paths are obscure now. As the temps rose the layers shed and the snow bombs dropped.

We arrived at the summit shortly after noon and were soon greeted by another hiker. Anyone out yesterday knew the views were superb. We relaxed on the summit for an hour having lunch and enjoying the views.

We started back down a little after 1pm, back at Herbert Brook LT at 2:30pm and at upper works at 5pm. A great day to be out.

Allen and Santanoni TH's were overflowing with cars.

I'm just an average hiker blogging about my adventures. Some people enjoy reading the narrative of stories, while others just want the pictures; I'll post both.

Everyone hikes differently at their own pace and limits; my posts are about mine. My blogs should be used for reference purposes only.
