Comments
Comments: Cold Temps froze snow over night. Lower elevations are hard packed and icy in places. Higher elevations still lots of snow. We used spikes til the Little River Crossing than switched to snow shoes. Trails were choppy so snowshoes were helpful plus televators were good. Stayed in snowshoes til descending Galehead. Switched to spikes for the way out. Bottom of Galeriver was getting boney with some bare ground. If temps stay cold good conditions will continue but warm weather will undermine snow. Road walk out we took off spikes due to bare ground. Great conditions to enjoy a Blue Bird Day.
