Comments
Comments: Took Echo Lake, High Meadow, Jack Frost, and Mountain House trails to the summit. Trail was well packed so snowshoes were not needed on these trails, yet we did wear microspikes once we started to climb up after reaching Echo Lake and wore them to the summit. We took Harrington down off the summit and immediately switched to our snowshoes. The trail was partly packed with some postholes near the summit. Continued to wear snowshoes the entire way down as it was a little uneven. Harrington is a little steeper between the summit and Link Trail, so it took us longer to come down Harrington than it did to summit with the other trails.
