Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: One water crossing is not super easy but not impossible. Water was pretty high, if you decide to go straight, you will dunk your shoes in the water. However, look on the left, there will be a yellow glaze on the rock, that was the real easier water crossing. We stupidly did not see it.

Comments
Comments: Greely pond trail was entirely free of snow. Once you ascent on mount osceola trail, the monorail become narrow, melting and unstable. You have enough space you sometime walk next to the monorail. Chimney was free of snow and ice but wet, so was the by pass. We went up by chimney and down by bypass. The section between the two summit is not too bad, snow with an unstable monorail, but really not difficult at all.
Views from the two summits were really nice. took the time for lunch on osceola summit before heading back. We saw a group of college kids with flat sneakers without microspikes... Warned them... hope that the were wise enough to turn back at some point.
