Comments
Comments: on jan. 22 I did tom and field but not willey because of tiredness due to trail breaking. since feb. 22 i haven't hiked due to family situations. so i decided to do willey and it was a great day. my hillsounds were great on the hard packed and somewhat icy trails. it was a little rough where the sun hit the trail below field toward willey. it was probably yesterday. any openings along the way yielded great views! all in all it was quite the nice hike. i now have 21 of the 48 over 70! i went up to avalon on return cause i hadn't been there in many years. any postholes were mainly off to the side of the packed path.
