Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Brook crossing on the ledge at the 2.5 mile mark on Edmands Path very icy. Micros on our way up and Emerel thought something more aggressive would have been better on descent. There were hikers barebooting it and looked like one payed the price by the bloody spot on the ice.

Comments: After being teased by the conditions reported on MWOB all week long we finally got to get over there and enjoy them. Mild temps, lots of sun, minimal wind and great views made for an awesome day. Other than the ice on Edmands Path the trails were great. Some ice near Lakes and some on the connector to the Base Station easily avoided. Jewell and areas above treeline were smooth, fast trails today. Traction stayed in pack except for that upper section on Edmands.
