    These types of rescues makes me wish people would get charged for the cost of the rescue. unprepared for the time of year.

    Maine does not get the volume of hikers that NH does. The WMNF is practically a city park for the greater Boston area and southern NH. So fewer rescues in Maine.

    The woods are bare down low on south slopes and along roads up in the whites but head into the woods and up in elevation and there is still snowpack especially on the north slopes and areas with softwoods. Folks just head out unprepared and if they run into unexpected conditions they fool themselves that it will get better instead of worse. The snow pack is also "rotting" If its below freezing at night it will reform a crust but give it warm day and around 11 AM it will start breaking down and by 2PM folks will be postholing and on some days they will posthole with snow shoes.
