Comments
Comments: Today it rained atop last-week's snow, making for a slushy path up to the summit dome, and from there to the summit a thin layer of ice atop rock. Some of us wore snowshoes and others MicroSpikes -- both worked okay.



We hikers shared the trail with cross-country skiers, where one group of four managed to hike up and ski down twice while our group hiked up and down just once.
