||Great day on the Presis with better than predicted weather; Washington was in and out of clouds in the morning, but completely out of clouds by around noon time. Around 2pm the sun even came out in the southern Presis. |
Hiked up Crawford Path; first snow 0.7mi prior to trail juncture with Pierce, and here and there are some patches, but as was noted in previous reports, the snow is easy to avoid and/or is stable. A few tiny patches between Pierce and Eisenhower; again, no problems. Nothing thereafter until heading to Washington with some minor snow patches that were also stable. Turned around on Washington and headed back to Lack of the Clouds and then stayed on AT southbound, skipping Monroe. Here and there the trail (flat areas) were under water, had running water or were muddy, but nothing bad. I feel that Edmands Path (used for descend) was in better shape than Crawford Path with less snow, only a few muddy areas.
Great conversations across the Presis with numerous backpackers!
