Comments
Comments: This was an amazing day to hike in the presidential range. It was sunny, clear, warm, and there was no wind. The trails were in good shape for springtime. The crawford path connector alternated between mud and the remnants of an icy monorail (I dont know the proper term for this). Crawford path up to mount pierce was packed snow and ice (I think the proper term for this is frozen granular). The ridge between pierce and eisenhower had packed snow in some areas, and bare rock in others. There was some slushy snow also. The segment of the eisenhower loop that I hiked had no snow remaining. It was covered in wet rock with some small patches of ice. Postholing was not an issue today. Whatever old postholes were there were rare and easily avoidable. I met another hiker who told me that they had a pretty rough time going down the edmunds trail, but I did not go down that way. I used either microspikes or bare boots all day.
