Comments
Comments: Trails were damp today and some rocks were slick. Piles of broken ice in places where it was falling off the trees. This made things slick in just a couple spots. I skipped Mt. Hight due to low clouds, but the only other hikers I saw all day said there was ice on the rocks heading north/down from the summit. Might need traction there.

Crew is replacing the bridge on Camp Dodge Rd. Be prepared to find a way around that if you take this shortcut on the way in/out. The crew was gone for the day when I got back, but there still isn't a bridge yet so I went just upstream to cross.
