Ascent Trip Report

Hit the trail at 7:30. Snow started at 9. Accidentally took the Wonacalet Range Trail for a few miles before finally talking myself into it being the wrong trail. When I went to correct myself I got turned around and made a circle. Started to get scared, eventually found my way back to the WRT/Passaconaway Bypass Junction. Snow in the low 30s became freezing rain in the mid 30s and soaked through 2 pairs of crappy gloves. Really cold and really wet, I was out the for 7 hours and I don't think I've ever been that excited to see my car. Had to sit with the heat on full blast for 5 minutes before I could feel my hands good enough to drive. #30 down!
