I figured we would jump on the one last solid & fast trail day before breaking snowshoes back out. Lincoln Woods was near-ice flume at the center of the trail to packed snow at the edges.
Osseo trail was packed solid, a bit of ice flow as the trail skirts the Osseo Brook for the first .3mi or so, then back to solidly packed snow for the remainder. A trace dusting of powder had fallen which had drifted toward the top of Osseo. The Downlook into Pemi Wilderness was absolutely stunning. All staircases were solidly under packed ice/snow from buttsledders, we utilized steps kicked into the slope for ascent and descent. Packed snow from Flume to Liberty. Great, great trail conditions before the snow flew! However, it will be nice to have winter back!
Happy Climbing (and snowshoeing)!
