|Lost and Found:
||Very light dusting of new snow. Early this morning temperatures were below freezing and the monorail was very solid. No issues post-holing. I carried my snowshoes but did not need them. Put microspikes on just after the Elephant Head Spur trail for the duration. Monorail is intermittent for the first mile, then becomes continuous. Did the loop clockwise. Jackson branch to summit was a sidewalk. Ledges just below the summit are partially exposed. Still plenty deep snow below the summits, and the traverse to Webster involved a lot of pushing through the trees. Webster branch of the trail is post-holed and in much worse shape than the Jackson branch. |
Silver Cascade was most excellent to see this morning.
