Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Lost a pair of aviator sunglasses above the ladders. 
Comments: Spring conditions. The snow is fastly melting away - you can pretty much hear dripping, trickling or flowing water under the snowpack the entire hike. Snowshoes worked great for dealing with the sloppy slush. There were a few icy sections which weren’t too bad given the heat of the day softened it to allow traction to sink in. The snow is completely gone from the ladders. Right at the top of the ladders is bare ground. A couple feet to the left of the ladders is where the snow picks right up again at about knee height, making for an interesting transition. We went up and down the ladders in our snowshoes while another group said they removed their snowshoes for the climb down and then put them back on at the bottom of the ladder. The rest of the hike was uneventful. It was nice to sit on top of the tower without needing to throw on additional layers or being chased off by the wind. All in all a good day.
