Comments
Comments: Nice seeing a lot of familiar faces out today. Trails all packed out quite well except for Eisenhower-Pierce Col which had a number of paths running every which way. Best route was one farthest to west. Others were treading over uncovered vegetation. Hopefully with all the traffic today that path will get packed out noticeably for usage. I used microspikes from start to Eisenhower and over to Mizpah; then switched to snowshoes over to Jackson as trail had softened and spikes were balling up. Hillsound Pros used for Jackson summit and trip down Webster-Jackson. All fine today with postholing only off the beaten track.
