Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: First portion of Livermore Trail was smooth sailing due to grooming. Thereafter, it was quite vexing for a mile or two due to snowshoe postholes frozen over (large stride too). Took the old logging road up to Scaur Ridge Trail (bushwhacked the last portion to the trail), then continued up it to Pine Bend Brook. Those trails, as well as going across the ridge, were generally in good shape for snowshoeing with a gripable frozen granular base and an inch or two of powder on top. A few small patches of blue ice poking through later in the day, but otherwise scrambles all filled in nicely. Some minor drifting throughout the day. On descent, I continued along Pine Bend Brook Trail, then bushwhacked up the ridge to Scaur Peak, then dropped back down to Scaur Ridge Trail. Ideal bushwhacking conditions right now due to solid base.
