Comments
Comments: Nice warm, relatively windless day for these peaks. Enjoyed some solitude as I didn't see a human until Washington. I barebooted about 1-1/2 mi into Ammo and about 1 mile outta Jewell and wore Hillsounds in between. Ammo and Monroe Loop were in good shape with the morning chill, nice grippy hard pack with some loose snow on top. Then the warmth started to have an impact. Bare rock, soft snow, slush, running water. Snow packs were mostly stable and still in in good shape in the tree covered section of Jewell. Wet day for the feet as the joints got their first try out of the season of rocks and root hiking.
