Comments
Comments: All kinds of conditions today. Down low early frozen mud, then snow/ice. Depths increase the higher you go. Trail is real solid spikes were the way to go today. No post hole chances today. Lots of ice on Mt Kinsman Tr. Icy between peaks but no real issues. Windy on both summits but not too bad. Views were spectacular!!! Lunch @ North viewpoint, no wind warm sun...a great rest! Spikes down until just past las crossing. Then mud mud & more mud. I came back with more mud on me than I can ever remember. Ahhh spring hiking. A great day to be in the woods!!t
