Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: The first water crossing on Avalon is still rock hoppable but the water was rising with the rain and melt down. The two crossings coming down from Tom on A-Z had some snow bridges that showed signs of collapsing. Still ok for now as the temps are going to be low this week.

Comments
Comments: We used micros all the way after the first water crossing on Avalon trail. There were numerous signs of deep postholing from previous hikers when conditions were less stable.
As the day warmed, the snow became slightly soft up to about 1 inch and the rest was solid as long as you stay on the monorail.
Our snowshoes and full spikes went for a ride in the pack.
