Comments
Comments: No snow or ice until just before 2nd crossing. mostly avoidable until well past the left turn on Brutus. Sharp spikes on about El. 3500 to summit and back to same point. Snowshoes went for a weight training ride today. Solo and alone from start until back to Lincoln Woods. Saw 4 humans and a 4 legger during the LW march out. Total spring mix bag of conditions.
