Addtl Notes
A beautiful day out. The southern portion of the hike did not appear to have been accessed recently. Log book at Spruce Peak Shelter had an entry from approx 1 week ago and then 4 to 5 other entries earlier in Feb.

Many of the deciduous trees still had clumps of snow on their limbs from the last significant snowfall, giving the appearance of cotton balls hanging from the branches. We joked that it was unique to see cotton growing this far N of the Mason Dixon Line.... And on such large trees!!
