|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Lots of blowdowns on the Ammo, especially where the avalanche knocked down trees |
|Lost and Found:
||It doesn't take long on the Ammo before you encounter the first patch of snow. At about 4000 feet the snow is pretty consistent. This was the last trip that my snow shoes came along to the ride. This trip was bare bootable today. On the steeps the snow was soft enough to kick in foot holds. There is still a large snowfield on the Ammo just before the hut. No snow on Crawford Path up to the Monroe summit. From LOC to Washington there is still one large snow field and 2 smaller ones to cross. The rest of the trail is bare. |
Clear blue skys today and minimal wind. Great day for a hike in the Pressies.
