Comments
Comments: Recent snow hid but didn’t fill in many postholes. Lower half was wet and sticky, upper half more firm. Used snowshoes entire way to Liberty and onto Flume. Top of
Both summits had minimal snow. Good spring conditions before too much snow melt. At the cutoff going up Liberty Springs, it was clear the Flume Slide trail hadn’t been used in a while.
