Comments
Comments: A fun group hike of the Owl with three other Gridders. The weather varied from drizzle to heavy showers throughout but with moderate temps,low water crossings and decent trail conditions it made for a quick out and back.Both bushwhacks had an established track and were easy to follow. we did take the path 1st left on Brutus as it seemed to be the most traveled at this time. We were able to bareboot the entire hike today but would anticipate micros after the slush freezes up tonight. Descending Brutus was a bit slippery due to heavy slush. After the 2nd unintentional fall and butt slide i was reminded of descending from S Hancock for a second.Snowshoes stayed in the trunk for this one but it wont be long. Cfs rate was 174 this morning and 192 this afternoon.
