|Lost and Found:
||Glad I dragged my butt out of bed. Started the hike in plentiful sunshine with no wind. Sun started to fade as high clouds rolled in. By the time I got to Tom the Presis were disappearing in the clouds. I had great views all day and quite the welcoming party held by the local Jays. I had nothing to feed them though so they weren't happy with me. |
Trails are all in good shape, I bare booted to the Avalon/AZ junction then switched to shoes for the heel bars. Snow was loose and unconsolidated in many places so it was a good choice. The post holes weren't too bad and they weren't in the middle of the trail but boy were they deep! I feel bad for that person, they may have some bruising in some awkward places!
Great hike before work!
