Comments
Comments: All trails had some snow pack and rail at the higher elevations, but it was firm and postholing was not that much of a problem. Another week and the snow will be almost gone. We bare booted the whole way with no difficulty. Met up with Doug Hunt today doing an out and back to S. and N. Twin.
