Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Right before hitting the Junction of Edmands Col- We found A red rain jacket with some other jackets stuffed into the sleeves. I left them there, and then realized at Jefferson Loop Junction it was the family hiking in front of us (Kathleen posted below for them to be returned) I did take a photo of it. Please email me if you need to verify the jackets as well. Good Luck Kathleen. 
Comments: Beautiful day above tree-line. Trip report will be posted on my blog later this afternoon! Jefferson Snow patch was manageable getting across, and coming down sphinx there was a very large snow patch that required a little maneuvering.
