Ascent Trip Report

NOT SURE OF EXACT DATE> On my first attempt to hike the whole loop, we started at the parking on 23, ascended Windham and continued on the loop via Acra point. The trail was well broken most of the way until we dipped down to traverse the low saddle of Acra point where (without snowshoes) were forced to 'posthole' (bad form) in thigh deep snow and hard crust. At times we could skate the crust untill breaking through,. But Eriks friend (Name??) weighed too much to skate and thus had to break trail the while way ~ 3 miles, Erik and Matt left us in the dust, then I left Him in the dust. I Eventually I met up with Erik & matt at the end of the Acra point trial where there is a descent to the road. It was getting dark so Matt and I went back for the car along the road while Erik went back for his friend. All made back ok. We picked them up along the road.
