|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||No problems, happy dog. |
|Lost and Found:
||Up to an inch or so of new snow, which concealed lots of ice underneath. It was cold enough that the mud was frozen and the snow was solid. Started in bare boots, wore microspikes most of the way except down low. Snow was still quite deep at places.|
Sleeper Trail is very rough; deep snow, badly postholed. Lots and lots of moose sign. The descent off N Tripyramid towards Pine Bend was very icy. Crampons would be good for a short while.
It was great to be back on the trail and great to see Tim.
