Comments
Comments: Great hike to Owlshead this morning-came out a little high on the buswhack but on return no issues following. Just before 4 a.m.East Pemi was at 893 cfs rising to 961 cfs around 10. The first crossing after bw was rock hoppable, 2nd crossing just below knees 3rd crossing knee high. All slightly higher on return. Definitely worth carrying water shoes for today. All trails completely snow free until approximately 3600 feet on Owls Head path. At this point micros were helpful on the off and on solid monorail. Closer to summit monrail softened slightly and there is about 2 feet of remaining snow.
