Comments
Comments: Eye protection is good idea between Liberty and Flume. Trail easy to follow all the way. Mostly a sidewalk. Between Liberty and Flume, it is tight.
Down below, on Liberty Springs, there's a lot of deep postholes on either side of the monorail. The danger being the sidewalk is so smooth, I stop watching my feet, and watch the scenery, and then ruin my day by falling into one of those things. Like a pristine garden path, with a few beartraps.
So a couple weeks ago Liberty scared me and sent me crying home! But I wasn't dead yet, so I came back today and got both of them. So I was back before 5:58pm, so these both count, I think. So I'm closing out the winter with 19 total, 7 this year. Thanks for all your detailed reports, it's been very helpful!!!
