Comments
Comments: Warming temps have impacted the trail. Soft snow at the lower elevations. Sections of the trail past the river crossing are very badly postholed. Only a narrow portion of the trail is hard packed, unless you carefully navigate the center of the trail, you will posthole regardless of the traction on your feet. We wore snowshoes for the duration but still occasional postholed.

This summit concludes our W48- its been a great journey with spectacular destinations! Good luck to those working on finishing their lists.
