Gary, Huck, Tom, Tony and myself went up White Dot trail on Mount Monadnock. The weather was beautiful but the trail conditions were wet, muddy and slushy. Traction (microspikes) were not needed but if you were not wearing winter boots you were getting wet. We ran into dozens of people wearing sneakers! What are people thinking?
