Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: The trail was mostly dry, with a few short patches of water and mud (like 10 feet long and only a few). It did not feel wet. We wore gaitors but we did not need them. About 1 mile from the top we switched to the spikes. It was consistent snow to the top with spikes. No postholing (The monorail is not that high and for most of it, green on the side of it), hard pack but a little bit of traction snow on top.
