Comments
Comments: Wet leaves on trail made for some slippery footing; snow and bits of rime ice started appearing around 2/3 of way up. Felt like rain as snow melted off branches and saw steam on Sosman as ice hit warmer air. Easier footing/less rocky for descent from summit by taking Sosman back to intersection with Tecumseh. still nice to do loop counter-clockwise.

Good day for layers and an extra pair of gloves in case one pair gets wet.
