Comments
Comments: Got a somewhat late start, so I was going to play it by ear weather I wanted to continue to Eisenhower or not. I was sucking wind today going up Crawford with a big pack on so I decided to just go to Pierce. The trail is in somewhat good shape despite all the freeze/thaw action going on. When I started at 10am it was pretty well packed. On the way down the snow was melting and on the way to mash potatoes. I stayed in snowshoes the entire time to avoid postholing on the side, but spikes would've been just fine. The 0.1 mile to Pierce summit is a mix of ice, bare rock, and hard crust snow. Got some good views of the Presidential range as always.
