Comments
Comments: Trail was damp in places late this afternoon/early this evening, including a decent amount of muck just above the top water crossing. Mud in the usual spots higher up as well, since this area gets very little sunlight this time of the year (and it was mostly cloudy today). Slight ground frost up on the ridge this evening with black ice forming on the roots just after sunset (not enough to consider traction, but enough to warrant caution).

Leaves are mostly down.

Ski slopes are mostly mowed and fairly good walking (assuming you skip the ones with bad footing, such as the main lift line).
