Comments
Comments: Beautiful day on East Osceola. About 3 sections with very step grade and some loose snow in parts, ice in others. Snowshoes would have been helpful on the way down, but there were large foot holes in the loose snow so we were able to follow a path up and down the sheer sections. Hike was very easy going through the Greeley Pond portion and the tougher bits came once we linked up with the Mount Osceola trail. About 4.5 hrs round trip
