Comments
Comments: 1” to 2” of snow in the lower elevations; one could bareboot or use spikes, but at the 2.5 mile mark where there’s mud and running water on the trail, the spikes came off. 3” to 4” snow on top of frozen and irregular monorail above 3200’ made for tough footing, though the higher you went, the easier the footing, and I put the spikes back on. Snowshoes might’ve been helpful here, but the monorail hidden by fresh snow was uneven and might’ve made footing worse. No drifting anywhere on the trail, even near summit. The only views today were views of falling snow all day.
