The Wapack Trail south from Mountain Rd. was a mix of mud and snow. A few patches were slippery. As the photos indicate, very little snow is on the top. Not much of a view today as there were clouds and snow was coming down hard at times.

Monadnock is out there.
This is the view to the west. Nothing much to see on this cold and snowy day.

Many trees have been damaged during the long, snowy and icy winter.

Many needles and branches have been pulled from the trees.

Here is a view up the trail from near the bottom.

North Pack via the Wapack trail was a bit busy today. The snow was moderately deep but clumped on my crampons. Found a cell phone at the base of the trail and returned it when I met the owner near the top. I continued south past the peak onto the Cliff trail for a view to the South.

Back at the peak, Monadnock was largely snow covered.

It was a beautiful day. I hope to go back up next weekend.
