Comments
Comments: Jefferson was socked in all day until about 4pm or so. Wet and slippery till you reached the alpine zone then was dry and easily tracked. Someone defaced/vandalized a couple signs on the Castle trail. Castle ravine is very tricky going down and one you reach below alpine then it is very slippery/mossy so choose your footing carefully.
