New Year's Day 2009

Left Smuggs via LT South to Chin, Windy & Chilly, much better in protection of woods. Loop via Profanity trail & return.

Trail Conditions: Mostly hard packed snow, 12" Lower trail, 3-4 feet near top; Chilly -5 F before windchill; Very windy on exposed NW side ?30-40mph wind; Lost trail @ beginning of exposed portion - faked it! Icy spots under light snow cover. 8-10" loose snow on Profanity Trail - fun glissiding!

Special Equipment Required: Snowshoes (w/traction device) helpful; traction device very helpful in spots & on exposed, especially climb up

Comments: Great hike and Awesome way to start the new year with my AT brah!
