Lost and Found
Lost and Found: I found a pair of red Eastern Mountain gloves, one after the other, and left them by the Lafayette sign near the trailhead. Someone else had already put a pink water bottle and a pair of black insulated gloves. 
 
Comments
Comments: You could do this whole trail in microspikes easily. I switched to snowshoes up on Kinsman Ridge because there were a few places where the snow was churned and chunky.
