Comments
Comments: Spitting snow with snow and ice on the ground starting at the parking lot with increasing depths higher up. Ice flows are forming. Vis was less than 100 ft near the top of Caps Ridge. Blue skies at the top of Jeff and remained so for the rest of the day. Brand new sharp spikes on at ~5,200 on Caps Ridge. I removed worn out spikes on the Crawford path S of Monroe:) Good to see Guy at the summit of Washington.
