Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Rocks on all three crossings are covered in ice-spikes recommended for rock hopping. Middle crossing is a bit trickier than others-Fin did not appreciate it, but somehow managed to rock hop on the icy boulders on way up. I lugged her 65 pound ass across on way back, which in retrospect, was a dumb move, but I made it without eating sh*t. switching out your poles for a hairy old bitch is not a safe move on icy rocks. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Great shape no blowdowns 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Easy trails but plenty of ice (low angle) and really cold running water everywhere. Fin did great-I applied a copious amount of mushers secret to her paws before the hike and she experienced zero ice balling, despite her feet getting soaked on the way up before getting into the shallow snow.

Comments
Comments: Not much to add from yesterdays trail reports on this route. There was no zero new snow overnight. Trails are very bony with plenty of ice and running water. Bluebird day-3rd time on Hight and the views never disappoint! rock spikes are essential right now-I put them on at water crossings and wore them all the way back to car. passed one trail runner on 19 mile at end of day, who was dressed appropriately for trail running. Meanwhile I was running full speed down the icy trail in full winter gear. I don’t always run down icy, bony trails in full winter gear, but when I do, I always regret it the next day:) now repeat after me: REDLINING. (erasing history and changing words doesn’t make you virtuous, it makes you communist)
