|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Many tree falls on the trails. Most were on the ground. I was able to either remove small trees or cut limbs to enable easier passage especially on Franconia Ridge Trail. Larger trees still need to be removed. |
||Saw one dog on the ridge. |
||A few flying insects |
|Lost and Found:
||Many hikers on the peaks today. All were enjoying the day.|
The footing is good on most of the trails although there was some slippery stretches on the upper section of the Osseo Trail on descent. The ledge just south of Mt Liberty summit was dry. Uphill from the top of the staircases on the Osseo Trail had some standing and running water that will likely ice up tonight. Today the trails were free of ice and snow.
Great views in all directions with the cloud deck high enough to usually allow views to Lafayette, Lincoln, Twins, and the Bonds.
