Comments
Comments: The forecast said clear under mostly cloudy skies. What we got was crystal clear blue skies with warm temperatures and very little wind. It was a perfect day. We started the day in microspikes / hillsound sand kept them on until the very end of the Jewell Trail. There wasn't much deep snow at the lower elevations but it did get deeper as we climbed. Maybe an inch or two down low but knee deep in spots up high. Felt good to post hole again. The trail was pretty much packed down the whole way and it was relatively easy to follow. Did take a side trail coming down Jewell but worked out way back to the real trail.
