Comments
Comments: I was the only car in the parking lot at 7:30am. I had intel that the trail had been broken since Tuesday's storm but the trail had pretty much drifted over in most places. From time to time I could see the original track but beyond the junction with the Eyebrow Trail, it was long gone. I rebroke it and cleaned up a few places where the previous trail breaker had deviated from the marked trail. Drifts were anywhere from 8 inches to 18 inches and higher. On my descent I encountered two more folks in snowshoes packing things nicely. The trail was looking really nice after their tracks. More snowshoe love is needed and it's far too soft for spikes.
