We hadn't been on Cabot in two years, and it had been four since we'd ascended using Bunnell Notch Trail. The temperatures were warm, which made for soft snow. There was no danger of postholing, however, except for one short section down by a water crossing. Traction wasn't even needed; I started in Hillsounds but took them off a few tenths of a mile into the hike.
|Soft enough for footprints, but not postholes.
|Love this view of the outhouse through the snowy landscape.
|Summit shot (close enough)
|Cheese on the 48!
