Comments
Comments: Bare booted to just before the Avalon/A-Z intersection. Spikes from there to Tom, Field, Willey, Avalon and back. The trail above 3000' was consistent consolidated snow except for a few rocky sections. On average, the trail between the four peaks was hard packed about 12" wide, very flat, and level with the adjacent snowpack. Remaining snowpack averages 6" to 18" off trail at higher elevations. Just the top half inch of the trail was loose from the rain and mid 40's temps. The trail between 2500' and 3000' was a mix of dry, wet, snow and ice. It rained throughout the hike so there was lots of running water on the trail and under the trail. Good carwash between Field and Willey. No need for snowshoes today although they might be a good choice for tomorrow if it snows tonight.
