Comments: After staying off the 4k's the past two months in favor of 52WAV's while the spring mess dwindled, it was great to be above 4000 (and 5000!) feet again. The lower 2/3 of Edmands Path was in excellent shape and barely a bug bothered me. I found the remaining snow starting at 3950 feet up to 4350 feet, going for about 0.6 miles. It was patchy at first and easy to avoid by hugging the rocks on the edge of the trail. Toward the latter part you need to stay on the well-packed snow. I carried my microspikes, but decided not to use them since the soft snow provided a decent grip. My poles served as my traction. Once you hit treeline, it's smooth snow-free sailing! A little bit of standing water on Crawford Path over to Monroe, but easily avoided by rock hopping. Stunning blue skies and little wind today. Only encountered about six pairs of people, most of which were French Canadians on holiday. Had the summits to myself, enjoying the spring.
