Lost and Found
Lost and Found: one light weight small women's Patagonia long sleeve layer, dark blue with light blue stitching; pretty sure I know who dropped it on the trail; I carried it out to Greely Ponds trail sign at parking lot; I hope it was reunited with its owner 
 
Comments
Comments: as previously reported; very fast and great conditions; bareboating to juncture with Osceola Trail; spikes up and across the ridge and back; took the bypass to the bypass at the chimney; we were a total of six hikers and seem to split between taking bypass or bypass of bypass; I put on crampons for descend from East Osceola for greater traction, but they are not necessary

no views, but we were happy that we were not freezing when stopping and chatting :) it was snowing almost all morning, so that by the time I descended from east Osceola, all tracks were fully covered again; met 6 more hikers on Greeley Pond Trail as I hiked out (one of who I assume dropped the dark blue sweater)
