Comments
Comments: A quick morning squall dusted the forest trails, muddy areas were frozen, crusted over. Running water easily traversed. Above treeline scattered blue ice on the ledges necessitated the use of microspikes, especially on Clark trail near the fire warden's cabin. All and all a great day for the hike.
