Comments
Comments: I had been expecting ice conditions based on what I experienced on Friday on Mt Pierce, but by Sunday everything had melted, and conditions were dry, and ice- and snow-free till going down Ammo Trail, which had a lot of small patches of black ice mixed with wet rock, making for slow going until the Gem Pool. The only slick area after that was the log bridge with the handrail. Westside Trail was beautiful and easy to follow, and marks my completion of redlining the 30th edition of the AMC WM guidebook. Thanks to Linc for a great day.
