Comments
Comments: Pretty well packed out everywhere, though Kedron Flume a little less so, with warm temps softening things up a bit especially at lower elevations. Used snowshoes all the way, but my partner used microspikes no problem, though they may have slowed her down a bit compared to snowshoes. There WAS a bit of postholing pretty evenly distributed along the entire trail. Ladders buried except one, which is partly exposed. Could just barely get snowshoes forward enough to use them. Trees at higher elevations still heavily coated with snow for a bit of car wash effect in tighter spots, esp. closer to Willey summit from the south.
