Lost and Found

Comments: I opted for an out and back due to Flume Slide being wet and snowy. A couple others had gone up and said that it was sketchy. I met a teen and his father who planned on descending it. I told them it was sketchy and a slip could lead to a fall. The father said they would play it safe, whatever that means. It was nice to hike in the snow again but I'm a little more sore today from the heavy pack and slippery trail. I could have used my microspikes but there wasn't much of a base beneath other than rock. About an inch of snow along along the ridge.
