Comments
Comments: The cold temps (15 degrees) kept the trail firm. 4 - 6 inches of fresh powder covering a crusty, firm base. Wore spikes to Lowes Path & bare booted Adams & Madison. Slow going trying to avoid ice & staying on the rocks. Much patience required. Spikes needed to descend Valley Way with its narrow but firm monorail.

Great seeing John Gutowski & Guy Jubinbille at hut.

Great being out with Bill Cronin & my main squeeze on this perfect blue bird day.
