Comments
Comments: Stayed sunny, which helped negate a 30-G40(guessing) MPH wind up on the summit. Trails were very wet. A lot of trail puddling and mud pits. Waterproof boots just about a must as even trying to rock hop your way through some locations was pretty difficult. Ice is starting to show up on the more exposed areas around 3000 ft. Difficult to tell at times what was just wet or actually icy. A little poking with a pole worked for us.
