Comments
Comments: Bare booted it on the road and first mile or so of the trail. Crossed both streams and shortly after switched to micros. It was firm this morning and that made it easier. Stayed in spikes for rest of the hike mostly because the monorail is extremely narrow. If you step off, you are going down! (Just asked Mr. Irrelevant!) Could have possibly switched to snowshoes on the way down, after the half way rock, as trail was a bit mushy, but there was so much running water and mud that we trudged through with spikes. No view and was snowing on us in the beginning, but a great spring hike with Tara, Mr. Irrelevant and Maya the pup.
