Comments
Comments: The trails were all in great condition given the amount of recent rain. Above treeline, there is very little snow with a lot of exposed rock. We opted to leave our snowshoes at the cars and just used microspikes/ Hillsounds, which proved to be more than adequate. A fair amount of ice heading down Airline, but all very negotiable.
