Comments
Comments: A great day with temps from 20 to 35, sun and clouds, breezy above 3000 feet. The trail was well packed from weekend hikers. I wore microspikes up and back and snowshoes came for the ride. Saw 4 hikers. The views were very good from several spots along the trail and from the ladder on the tower.
