Comments
Comments: road to summer parking still mostly covered with heavy wet snow. lower trail is a bit bony, but still good snowshoeing. still lots of snow up high. quite wet and sticky and soft in spots despite the trails heavy use. snowshoes are still the way to go though very few are using them. the upper ledges are completely clear of snow.

great day to be on cardigan. the views were fantastic. very warm temps with a refreshing breeze above treeline.
