Comments
Comments: There was no snow on the road, but the monorail traces started immediately when the trail left it. Spikes were good for the puddles on the trail that had frozen. Going up, spikes were fine -- coming down, after sun had been on the snow a few hours, I could have used snowshoes. The path down to the noth viewpoint had not been touched in a week or two. A few spruce traps there.
