||North Twin and South Twin has a nice trench and plenty of traffic today.|
From S Twin to Guyot, there was a single pair of snowshoe tracks and we added 2 more. Still far from a trench but not a fresh break. The track also meanders a bit right before ascending up to Guyot. A more direct line could be established but probably wouldnt save any time given it would need to be broken out.
Unfortunately, the Twinway from Guyot to Zealand was completely untouched but the we laid down two tracks to Zealand. It is a start.
The Twinway from Zealand to Lend-a-Hand saw at traffic from at least 10, all with snowshoes, and a nice trench exists.
Lend-a-Hand is not quite a trench but almost there, probably saw traffic from 4-5 today, including us.
Firewardens trail is very well packed but there was at least one barebooter who left their mark with dozens and dozens of postholes.
