Comments
Comments: Getting a late start after participating in the Rescue Me 5K in Lincoln. We made out way up to West Tecumseh and then into the col clearing many more blowdowns(about 12). Some continued on to the summit when others decided to turn back as it was getting dark. Beautiful evening to be out on the trails. Snow depth ranged from about an inch at the trailhead to about 5 inches up high. We bare booted up but used traction for the descent. A big thanks to all my SAR family for all the help clearing the trail.
