Comments: Trace snow that fell overnight made for pretty scenery on the hike. Ice is already starting to show up on the trail, starting just below the Mt. Surprise summit and becoming more prevalent below the summit of Moriah. Everyone in our group barebooted, however light traction may have been helpful - not time yet for MicroSpikes, but YakTrax Pros would have made foot placements easier.

Beautiful views from the trail on Saturday, including the northern Presidentials (Washington never popped out of the clouds). It was my 48 finish and met 2 others on the trail today who were also completing their lists. Great day of fall hiking!
