Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: First crossing was icy and tough. Going down stream the 2 guys jumped to a half icy rock. I could not do that so a little further down I was able to cross on rocks and a small tree across the water. Coming back someone put 2 logs across the rocks the guys jumped on. Much easier, thank you whoever it was.

Comments
Comments: after getting across the first brook everything else was easy. We started out bare booting on light powder covering the trail. Changed to micro spikes when trail started gaining elevation. There was some ice under the new snow. The Avalon trail would probably have required crampons to come down as there was a lot of ice. Monorail was frozen solid and made for easy walking except for the left over post holes. powder increased to a couple of inches going from Field to Willey. Coming down A-Z there was a lot less ice then on the Avalon going up past the junction. It was probably easier hiking today than it would have been last week.
