|Lost and Found:
||Totally socked in by the time one approaches pitch before Vista, and only became more clouded in as one ascends. But, always good to get Out, even if no views.|
Trail from parking to junction is muddy with wet leaves, but easy slope causes no issues. Once above the sign, crusty ice with 1" snow covering persisted to summit. Light traction helpful there, but not necessary today; once freeze sets in, it could be important.
Damp chill, but only intermittent moderate wind. Fine views if you like solid grey starting at 30 yards.
