Comments: Well the sun was in hiding today. Snow flurry-ish almost hail conditions for part of the hike. Trail is quite wet in spots along Oak Ridge Cutoff & parts of High Ridge Trail. Raised monorail along Black Snout Trail. It was firm today with frozen in place post holes. Brought traction but barebooted entire hike. We were able to hike alongside mont of the monorail. Decided to stop at view point on Oak Ridge Trail, a great open view of the lake & castle.
