Comments
Comments: Very nice crusty snow trail with a little ice here and there, especially above tree line; all easily avoidable. Gray skies allowed views to E, S, W, but N was closed in by approaching squall. Forgot Kestrel, but estimate T @~20's; wind 20 with gusts 40+/- before and during squall.
Fine day for a "rehab" hike to get legs ready for upcoming season.
Fun watching a few crows playing in the wind!
