    Default Mount Starr King and Mount Waumbek 3/10/07

    Two smaller mountains north of the Presidentials, Waumbek being the 4000 footer, barely, measuring in at 4006'. The trail was packed out by snowshoers, though stepping off the trail resulted in sinking in to your hip in soft snow. Jude wore cleats, not quite crampons, but more than yak-traks, I went in just my 3 season boots and wool socks, Emma had her usual 4 -wheel drive. It was so warm all I wore was polypro running pants, no long underwear and just an armorall shirt, had to take the light jacket off even though it had zip pits. Just too warm! Later as the snow softened as the day warmed up we both wished for our snowshoes as we occasionally post-holed. At one point between summits the trail crossed a spruce trap where I went in both legs up to my chest. Fun. Pictures here:
