Ascent Trip ReportHad an excellent day hike with some of the home team. We got to the trail head around 9:30AM and began hiking by 10AM. The trail head was located at the end of Willey Station Road off of Route 302 in the Crawford Notch area. We set a good pace on Ethan Pond Trail, but took some breaks to enjoy the exposed Earth that we haven't seen in quite some time. The trail was good, lots of exposed earth and rocks to walk on, but as we got higher in elevation we ran into the snow covered path where we had to monorail most of the way up. From Ethan, we took Willey Range Trail. We summited Willey by 1PM and enjoyed some pack off slack off. There wasn't too much of a view, but there was a little outlook which we couldn't see because we were sitting in the clouds. We refueled and fed the solo grey jay on the peak then carried on to field.
