Comments
Comments: Trace of icy snow at the start then 4-6 inches of powder increasing to 6-8 inches of powder. There is no base under the snow and none of the rivluets are frozen making for a very difficult day for walking. Hard to know if you were going to step on a rock or in a hole or in a 6 inch slush. Snowshoes would have been ok for some sections but it would be difficult to keep them from getting wet. The Engine Hill bushwhack had no tracks when we went in but on the way back there were tracks at both ends. We did not take it so don't know the conditions
