Comments
Comments: Tote Road to Abol Bridge Campground is pretty icy. I wore snowshoes on the way in and bare booted with some slipping on the way out. Stepping off the trail is posthole city.
The trail under treeline is packed snow with an icy crust. Abol Slide is mostly down to rock now, Tablelands are pretty icy. It was springlike conditions then! Hopefully the snow that fell on Friday gave the mountain a little dusting.
