Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: Caps Ridge to Appalachia with car spot from Emerel. Mother Nature kind again with in and out views, mid 30's temps and mild wind. Hit some steady rain through Twin Mountain and Bethlehem on way home (nice timing). Trails snow and ice free and dry except for lower part of Watson Path and Valley Way. Some slick, steep trail on lower part of Watson Path but a nice change of usual route out.
