Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Found one soggy EMS glove on the herd path on my way out. I left it at the "Basin" sign at the start of the bike path. 
Comments: The Liberty Spring Trail was a stream for about a half mile in the usual spots. I was able to bareboot until 3,000 ft. on the ascent. There was about an inch to one and a half inches of snow covering an icy trail for a while, then probably two inches for the last mile or so to the summit. Very slippery on the descent during the icy sections, so I left my Hillsounds on until just before the large stream crossing on the descent.
