Did a loop of Sherrill and North Dome with Tom, Anna and Harold. We started from Shoemaker road and finished at the fisherman’s PA on Spruceton road. With a spring mindset we decided to forgo carrying the snowshoes and just brought the microspikes. We could have used the ‘shoes in a few spots but otherwise it wasn’t too hard to proceed and the ocassional gopher hole plunge led to some hoots,hollers, laughs and interesting photo ops. A great day with warm temps allowing us to strip down to T shirts. After signing into the can on ND again it was time to break out the shorts for the final descent to the cars. Surprisingly didn’t see another hiker all day. The last stretch to the cars was on bare ground, spring is slowing moving up the peaks.
