Comments: Novice area trails, Lower Sunday, Black and White Trail, tower road

Wanted to check the trail after the wind we've had. Used snowshoes start to finish. Snow was firm for the ascent at 8:00 a.m. with no issues. Softened up for the return with some slipping but nothing major. More cairns are becoming visible but I do hope to add more markers as time and money allow.
