Comments
Comments: Trails are in good shape. A fair amount of mushy snow and monorail remain just below treeline, but all was either avoidable or shallow enough to not be a problem. Some pockets of mud and running water, esp. on carriage road & snapper, but nothing problematic to walk through. Carried spikes but did not use them; could've been helpful on a few short stretches but certainly not necessary. Water crossings are all bridged but made for a nice spot to stop and soak our feet on the way back to the car!
