Comments
Comments: A perfect day for our last winter hike with nothing but clear blue skies - not a cloud to be seen and view stretching forever. Conditions have changed since the trail report filed on Thursday - given all the traffic trail is perfect packed powder - take your pick of snowshoes, light traction or bare boots though don't venture off the path or you're up past your hips! Good time to take advantage of the trail. A bit of ice on the stretch of Webster cliff trail heading up to the summit but easy to negotiate. Many out today passing 30+ on the trail. Given our late start we ended up having the summit to ourselves except for a pair of gray jays. Can't wait til next weekend and our first hike of the spring!
