Comments
Comments: Beautiful day on the trails. Fist 2 miles or so are bare ground with some running water on the trail. after the last water crossing i switched to my micro-spikes and uses them until i got to that spot on the way down. There is a solid monorail going up to liberty, but it was getting soft on the way down. I don't imagine it will last much longer. The trail between Liberty and flume was getting soft on my way back. By this afternoon i wouldn't be surprised if you would want to use snowshoes.
