Saturday December 28 2019 Chase Mountain Hike by Nancy SchulzEight GMC members hiked the 6-mile round trip to Chase Mountain in very pleasant conditions. Temps were in the 30s and clouds diminished as the day progressed. Minimal snow cover meant that we were able to hike without snowshoes; some participants opted to use microspikes for the descent. Everyone found poles to be helpful. After slightly more than two hours, we enjoyed lunch at a stellar vista at the summit. Our return trip was a bit quicker. The warmth of the day was enough to generate slippery mud-season conditions and ruts on portions of Notch Road.
