Comments
Comments: Gorgeous, windless, bluebird day. Felt like we were the only ones for most of the hike. Had great conversation and laughs with other hikers on top of both Liberty and Flume. Snowshoes from start to finish. The snow is getting soft, so people with micro spikes were getting frustrated by snow clumping in their spikes and reducing their traction. There are also a ton of dangerous post holes. Snowshoes were perfect and fun in these conditions! A few patches of ice here and there, but nothing notable.
