Ascent Trip Report

Trip to Little Porter and Blueberry loop from Garden ADK HIGHPEAKS to Blueberry and out to Marcy Airfield. Snowshoes on pack snow up the long 3 miles to Lil Porter and then snow becomes thigh deep cement. Snow shoes don't float so well, but what would? Down the ridge with path finding very difficult because of wet snow laden trees. Snow was still very deep at 3k. The trip down to BlueBerry was nuts and we were soaked thru (as I didn't put my rain gear on) to protect from the show of wet spruce and snow. Warmed up and changed shirt at Blueberry and then made the long down to marcy airfield.. no snowshoes, no cramps.. Hot winter to Hot Spring conditions lower down. Tim joined us today.
