Comments: Nice hike, started in the dirt with running water here and there, halfway up snow showed up, there are postholes from two other hikers. Used there holes to provide me stable footing going up. Barebooted but snowshoes would have been easier. Careful in the col up top, mud underneath the snow bridge, fell thru once. On the ridge ATV tracks. Took blue trail all the way up.
