Comments
Comments: Traverse from Liberty Springs to Lincoln Woods. Weather reports showed high wind warning, not too bad, we were able to stand and take photos on Liberty and Flume without getting too cold, but lunch stop was cut short, too much time without gloves.
Whitehorse trail icy, bottom of Liberty Springs had patches of ice, climbing up to the tent site, packed snow with ice under. On Franconia to Liberty Springs, had to avoid some ice, still no need for traction. Col from Liberty to Flume a nice walk, packed snow, still no need for traction, lots of exposed rock on Flume. Some donned Microspikes on the way down the Osseo, bit others did not and were not slowed down. Bottom of Osseo below ladders snow & ice free (leaves). Nice walk out on the Lincoln Woods through relocated section.
