Comments
Comments: A great day with temps from 35 to 65 with clear blue sky and no wind. Saw 6 hikers and 1 dog. The trails were wet with running water and mud down low and a semi solid monorail with up to 4 feet of snow on the Mt. Osceola Trail. Wore microspikes on the monorail and needed the traction on the steep sections of the trail.
