Track Notes

I was last here on 28 Aug 19, when we did pretty much the same trip in reverse.

I was looking forward to this trip. New snowshoes, a new member of NPA ACT (not just a hanger on).

I found it testing with the bung arm and hand. Beautiful weather, not many others about where we were.

I’ll let the photos do the talking
