|Lost and Found:
||I dropped my North Face knitted Beanie somewhere near the Eyebrow junction above the Eyebrow. If you find it, it’s yours. ||
||We went right at the Eyebrow junction to the top of the Eyebrow. This section has some sketch-tastic sections and I would not recommend this direction. ESPECIALLY for descending. The Eyebrow trail was also a highway for animal activity. Lots of Bear, Hare, and Grouse tracks. Also some sort of cat tracks and many canine tracks but no human tracks...hmmm....|
Ice for the majority of the trail, definitely bring light traction and just ride those the whole day. 4 inches of snow up high but not enough to warrant snowshoes or gaiters yet.
Awesome fire tower with The Presies peaking over the under cast.
