Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Found an XL "Viking" outer garment with sunglasses in pocket between Greenleaf Hut and Lafayette. Probably belonging to 3 hikers on their way down I met earlier. Left on sign at bottom; hopefully reunited. 
Comments: Up Old Bridle down Falling Waters. From start to first viewpoints was fairly well packed as well as Falling Waters Tr. from Shining Rock jct. down. Upper section between these marks less packed with lots of drifting. Tracks filled in within 5 minutes from Greenleaf Hut to south side of Lincoln. Cairns and rock walls visible for trail following if no prior path visible. Tracks headed towards Liberty but I don't believe they went too far. Lots of snow. I went waist deep while exploring in the Lafayette campground area right near lot.
