Comments
Comments: Conditions are changing daily this time of year. Wore microspikes to the Osceola Trail. Some bare ground, some monorail. Stayed in micros until about 1/4 mile up the Osceola Trail (lots of bare ground), then switched to snowshoes all the way to the Chimney Bypass, which was snow and ice free. Then put snowshoes back on again to Mt. Osceola. Some fun snow skiing and sledding down from Mt. Osceola. Coming down from East Osceola, switched back to microspikes for the steepest 1/2 mile below the Greeley Pond viewpoint, which had several sections of bare ground and lots of rocks showing (it was okay going up with snowshoes but snow was melting more bare spots). Mixed conditions and snowshoes are still needed. Still one of the more pleasant spring hike on these peaks. Amazing views and lots of laughs with Gypsy Hiker and Tara, who now has the Osceolas 12 times for Grid #1 (Yay!).
