Lost and Found
Lost and Found: After slipping on the ice descending from Mt Moriah and losing a Kahtoola microspike I experienced a multiplier effect as I found another microspike in the same spot as mine on the ground. I returned it to the owner down the trail a bit 
Comments: Excellent hike of these two peaks today. There was just a trace of snow at the beginning and approximately 2 inches with only a few drifted spots towards the summit. Microspikes went on at about 2300 feet as there is substantial frozen ice flow. Winds were heavy but clouds cleared showing beautiful views. I met 3 other hikers today.
