As we began to gather at our meeting place, it started to rain. We wondered if this was going to be a cold wet hike. By the time we reached the Burrows trailhead, the rain had stopped. We took the crossover to the Forest City Trail to Montclair Glen Shelter for a quick snack. The ground was covered with snow and snowflakes began to fall. Some folks decided to try out their micro spikes.

We took the Long Trail to the summit of Ethan Allen Mt. with limited views as there was snow in the air. We gathered again at Montclair Glen for lunch. It turned out to be a nice day with our first signs of winter.
