|Water Crossing Notes:
||The one significant crossing on Dicey's was easy with the log. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Brought along four with us and they all enjoyed frolicking in the mud. Ledges were pretty bare and a non-issue |
|Lost and Found:
||Overall, much better than anticipated. The cooler temps Saturday night set the snow up nicely and the monorail, which began about 1.5 miles in, was stable for the most part. We all threw on spikes a half mile or so before the ledges and kept them on until much later in the day.|
Rollins was solid enough. 3/5 of us brought snowshoes, but they were never necessary. Off of the monorail was pretty soft, but it wasn't terribly difficult to stay on.
Things got soft as the day warmed up on the way down Dicey's Mill, but the snow ended about a mile before the river crossing. From the crossing on it's a mess of running water and mud. A couple more weeks and this will all be gone!
