Comments
Comments: Day 1 of a Sandwich overnight...

Livermore Trail from the Kanc had all conditions checked above at some point - a complete mixed bag. Just beyond Livermore Pass was very wet and muddy...like up-to-the-shin, boot-sucking muddy in a couple of spots. From there Scaur Ridge Trail was a little leafy but mostly dry - as were the rest of these trails. The blowdown stretch on the Kate Sleeper Trail is passable and quite a sight to behold.

I saw maybe a half-dozen folks on the Tri's and nobody else until setting up camp off the Kate Sleeper Trail. Great weather and a VERY quiet night made for a fun trek.
