Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Saw some dogs today. Best on trail. Snow is deep off trail and somewhat loose at ledges. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Found a good z seat near A-Z and Avalon Trail Intersection. Left it at the kiosk. There was also a single red/orange spikes there already.  
Comments: Snowshoeing the whole way. Micro spikes or crampons would be fine but some post holes were present throughout. Snow was loose and got a little sticky later. I recommend snow shoes to help keep trail good. It’s worth the extra work. Either way, loose snow was causing many to resort to some sliding, voluntarily or not so much. Overall great day, not bad conditions. No views early due to overcast.
