|Lost and Found:
||Fire Wardens trail was clear of snow & dry until Bigelows Col. Snow between the Bigelow peaks & 0.25mi from AT SOBO from West Peak. I had traction but didn’t deploy and didn’t feel I needed to. Passed someone who said he wished he’d brought traction.|
There’s a few other snow covered sections between just after West Peak to South Horn & descending South Horn but they don’t last for long.
Horns Pond Trail is on great shape and was maintained today!
