||Dry Trail, Wet Trail, Standing/Running Water on Trail, Mud - Minor/Avoidable, Snow/Ice - Small Patches |
||Light Traction |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||First few no big deal- but things became progressively more hairy after the 2 mile mark. Plenty of water at the moment. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||A few minor blowdowns |
||Just ours today |
||Too crummy out for bugs |
|Lost and Found:
||We knew today was most likely not a summit day, but we had time and wanted to see how Ammo looked. |
The first 2 miles were generally uneventful, no tricky crossings, not too much mud, no snow except in a couple very shady areas.
Things in general deteriorated around mile 2.5 (weather went downhill, the trail itself was a waterfall next to the waterfall, the water crossings looked sketchy, more snow/ice, wind got ugly. All things we anticipated, so we called it a day and headed down.
On a nicer day, the trail itself may have been reasonably passable past mile 2.5- but everything added up to us not finding out!
