Ascent Trip Report

Sierra and I started around 9:00 with Ryan from Seager. We left our snowshoes in the car and hoped for the best with trail conditions. The snow was solid the entire way, with only an occasional posthole once we were bushwhacking. We found the canister with no trouble and headed down to the saddle on our way to Graham. We were able to navigate the ledges fairly well and we ascended Graham in a series of steep and level sections. There were four hikers on the summit of Graham when we arrived. We followed their tracks most of the way to BLM. After spending about twenty minutes at the fire tower, we made great time as we descended to the Mill Brook Rd. parking area and finished by 4:00. The last day of winter hiking brought clear skies, no wind and mild temps in the mid 40's. Total mileage - 10.4
