Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: The first couple of water crossing are getting interesting. Their level increased during the day. I was just able to rock hop and not go over the tops of my boots.  
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: The Greeley ponds trail has a ton of blow downs and leaners but most have been removed. I think that a few of the easy step overs are now waist high. The MT Osceola trail was in great shape until just below the summit of Osceola.

Comments
Comments: The good news is that there is still plenty of snow. The bad news is that I was the only one of the 15 people that I saw with snowshoes on. I wore them from the parking lot. Switch to mini crampons for the last part of the ascent of East thru the chimney by-pass otherwise snowshoes were great. Virtually no ice yet.
