Comments: This was a "bluebird" day. Ed H. and I packed out the 4" of new snow on the Liberty Spring Trail. It got tougher near the ridge with lots of drifts. The stretch between Liberty and Flume had not been packed out since the Jan 4 blizzard. It was slow going knocking snow off bend-overs. As we took off our packs in preparation to go uphill to Flume, three people caught up with us to help pack out the uphill. The views on Mt. Liberty and Mt. Flume were about the best they can be - about 100 miles in all directions. We could make out Mt. Mansfield and Camels Hump in Vermont.
