Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Found a pair of men's black Seirus all weather gloves on the Gulfside trail, let me know if your missing them. 
Comments: Great weather, very mild. Great Gully is a workout but doable, a few spots along the falls are tough to navigate due to hard to find blazes. Bailed on summitting Mt. Adams and Mt. Madison due to concerns on time / daylight but in retrospect, could have summited one, if not both. Was prepared for snow / ice conditions but no issues at all. Took microspkies for a ride and was glad I left snowshoes at home. A few small patches of snow near top of Great Gully and along Gulfside but easy to avoid and nothing to worry about.
