Comments: Gypsy hiker and I stared out to Field and over to Willey. Shortly after the water crossings we put snowshoes on. Anywhere from 3-5 inches of snow accumulation and some drifting, but not much deeper - just harder packed and a bit tiring on the legs! A section between Field and Willey was a little tricky and we were far right (about 30ish feet) corrected on the way down. Gypsy did the honors of breaking trail up the steep section of Avalon and it was much appreciated. We parted ways at after returning to Field and I continued over to Tom. The trail was easily followed and the snow was just as powdery. The last climb to Tom seemed a little more hard packed and heavy, but that was short. The way off Tom was easy - rocks were covered and just glided down for a quick and easy descent.
