- Snow on trail
Walked right from fall into winter! Most of the fall color has now passed, and there was a lovely dusting of snow on the trees for the last leg of the trail. Yak Trax or poles ould be helpful (although I managed fine without) on the last piece of the trail as it was a little slippery and icy, and likely to get worse from here on out. The top ridge was just stunning with the fresh snow and icicles on the trees, and there was a nice view of Rainier.
I have to say I do love this trail -- the top meadows are always spectacular, plus it's a good workout and easy to get to.
