This trip was planned as a snowshoe, but due to the dry conditions, became a hike.
We brought microspikes, but the trail was a big mixture of dry dirt, solid ice, and mixed ice/snow/dirt, so some people chose to wear them, and other skipped.
We took the east side of Snowshoe Hare out to its far point, then returned more directly along Telephone, as no skiing was possible.

Short distance into the Snowshoe Hare trail.

I never knew this field contained a large swamp.

Typical trail conditions.

The short steep hill on the east route.

A now-frozen creek led to a short trail diversion.

The better-packed snow on Telephone ski trail.
