Comments
Comments: First 5 minutes or so, saw yellow violets, red trillium, a little hobble brush. Monorail starts soon afterward, but with the weather the next few days, that may change (higher temps, rain). I would bring light traction to be on the safe side; doesn't weigh much and you probably paid good $$$ for it. Upper elevations the monorail was like a balancing beam. Slide off of it, you'll end up waist deep in snow. Monorail unstable in many areas. My boots are still on the porch drying. An aggravating mess, but the views and weather were perfect. Beautiful day!
