The first mile or so of the Mt. Tecumseh Trail was snow free, but wet/muddy from the storm. Still some foliage on the trees, but the trail is covered in wet leaves. Sun came out this afternoon and started drying things off.
From what I could see, it appears the snow line is around 3,000 feet in elevation. In talking with descending hikers, there was a couple of inches of snow up high covering just about everything, but Microspikes were not needed. That might chance first thing in the morning, if things freeze up overnight. With the ground not particularly frozen, I suspect a lot of the snow will melt during the day tomorrow.
Could see that the North Slide of Tripyramid is completely white.
