Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Husband lost the basket of his pole; prob at the bottom of a 6 foot hole! Found nothing. 
Comments: Trail was hard-packed first few miles; we changed from microspikes to snowshoes on the ridge and stayed in snowshoes until the flats on the return. I changed back just because it made the water crossings easier. Lots of deep powder off to the sides of the trail which was obliterated in places on the ridge by gusty winds. Occasional postholing, but trail was in good shape, overall. Saw lots of folks with sleds, which I was terrified of while heading up. Had to sit down a few times myself on the way down, although I hate to do that to the trail. It was just so steep in sections! The clouds cleared out to provide nice views from Middle peak. That’s a wrap; was hoping to reach 50% completion on the W48, but fell short by 2 as Wildcats were drifted in on our attempt Thursday. A good season bagging 8 more!
