Comments
Comments: Bottom of trails was dry with water and wet leaves, mid way up you hit a monorail that was frozen in the morning and had turned soft/slushy by the afternoon. Areas of sun had melted so you had dry rocks and shade areas had up to 3' of packed snow. Skinny monorail in parts was the least fun. Ridge was completely dry and no snow or ice so the sun had done its job above tree line. Beautiful day!
