Three new-to-GMC folks and Ted walked the foot-thick ice on the LaPlatte and Shelburne bay for a few hours. We tried our hand at identifying tracks (turkey, coyotes, bobcat, cross-country skier, skater, schrew) just like Sue Morse! Microspikes were ideal. If trip leaders want new folks to see their outings, feel free to post them in Seven Days, where these folks (plus two more who were unable to make it) saw this outing. With Juan and friend, Roger, and Ted as leader.
