Comments
Comments: Great day getting some red-lining in with my friend Mike. I hiked in the night before and Mike met me at camp in the morning. Spikes were doable to the Red Ridge trail but snowshoes recommended from there. The monorail just isn't stable enough or packed enough. Plenty of post holing even with snowshoes on. Oh the joys of spring hiking. I expect these conditions to persist for quite some time. Upper portions of Red Ridge are all exposed rock so we carried snowshoes for this short section. It was an excellent day with varying conditions and weather.
