David and Kim met at the Cambridge commuter lot at 9 AM and took one car up to the top of Sumggler’s Notch where we were fortunate enough to find a place to park.

We walked through low thin clouds, damp woods, and consequently slippery trails, which slowed progress in places. We saw a few folks at Sterling Pond and as we descended from Madonna, but had trails to ourselves from there to Whiteface. We went up to the top of Whiteface around 1:30 before returning to Whiteface Shelter, where we had a late lunch.

On our return we again saw a few people as we passed the ski trails, including a friend of Kim’s out walking her dogs, and found around 20 people at Sterling Pond. We finally got back to the car around 5.
