Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: No issues heading up Kedron Flume or Willey Range Trail, all snow free. The ladders are missing a few more steps, watch yourself. The stretches of monorail snow and ice started not long after the summit of Willey, and ended about halfway down Willey Range heading toward the Mt Tom spur. Rotting monorail, plenty of post holing (there’s running water under some of them!), and ice. Probably still easily about three to four feet in some spots. Starting early with the summertime temps over the next few days might be helpful. We did pack micro spikes not knowing what we might find, but we never put them on. As far as mud goes...even with all the melt, the usual trouble spots on trail were drier than we have known them to be. Even the Tom spur! The descent from the spur, on the A-Z trail was the driest of the day.
