Ascent Trip Report

Started from the Rt 11 parking area. Immediately discovered more snow on the trail than I expected. My gators would have helped if I brought them. The Quarry Spur trail was hard to follow. The snow was 2 feet deep in some areas. I followed foot prints part way but apparently they turned back. I thought of doing the same but did some bushwhacking and eventually found my way. Nothing exciting on top. Heading down on the other side to Mt Anna.
