Comments
Comments: Nice hike of these peaks. I was able to bareboot until approximately 3300 feet and then micros until Mt Lafayette. Switched back to micros when descending Falling Waters Trail. Lots of bare rock across the ridge chose careful steps bareboot. The trails below treeline still have a decent,solid snow pack in many places with loose granular on top postholing was not an issue today. It was nice seeing many people out enjoying this day.Snowshoes along for the ride today.
