Lost and Found
Lost and Found: nada 
Comments: It was a Great day to be in the mountains (I'd say FINE day but Teal Goat owns that one). Little River was a challenge since I didn't have water shoes but the double tree worked and it was a short whack to get back to the trail. There is still decent patches of snow between north and south twin but no spikes needed. Also some decent patches on twinway but easy enough to walk over. Hats off to the people who do this loop in winter. It is a great loop but not sure I would be up for it in winter with the additional distance to Seven Dwarfs (and the additional pack weight for winter). Nice chatting with quite a few people along the route.
