Intermittent snow - not hard to cross

Arrived TH at 10, there were few groups on little Si section, after turning Boulder Loop section, the fresh snow from yesterday night started covering the trail, being the first time hiking this trail, and no markers or ribbons to follow along this old trail (was told afterwards, that this old mount Si trail is much less maintained), I found myself so lucky to have ONE set of foot prints to follow... phew ...

Later, when I was still on my way up, the woman whose foot prints I been following was on her way down, I thanked her, without her footprints I would not know where the trail goes :(

Poles are helpful going up and coming down, Also will be good to have gaiters and spikes after 2/3 way up when there is more snow. 

The top is mostly a boulder pile, not many flat surfaces to sit for snack or lunch, but the view is fabulous.
