Comments
Comments: I took a day off from work before the predicted rain on Wednesday. Nice spring like day with temps from 25 to 35 and a breeze at times on the summits. Clouds and fog until noon then cleared to a brilliant blue sky. Saw 5 hikers and 1 dog. Wore light traction for the complete hike as there was a lot of ice and the traction was needed on the steeper parts of the trails and the ridge. A great day to be out on the trails.
