Comments
Comments: Quick hike of these peaks in a direction less taken. Trails were soft at beginning of hike and firmed up a bit at upper elevations. There is about an inch of mashed potatoes throughout covering a still mostly solid very narrow(at times)track. Being Spring I observed the first signs of the above very well illustrated monorail for a small stretch heading to summit of Mt Avalon and again between Mt Field and Willey. Micros until Willey outlook and switched to snowshoes for the duration. One step to either side of trail there is approximately 3
5 feet of snow. This is very evident from some deep postholing. Great views today, including some of the best of the year from Mt Tom. It was nice to cross paths and chat with two fellow Wanderers Gridding these peaks as well as well as a couple of others as I descended. With warmer temperatures I highly recommend snowshoes.
