Super report OutandBack. Thanks for sharing.
I know what you mean. Very late Spring warmup.
Everything out here is open and dry to about 9300ft.
Although we were able to scout the first 4-5 miles from the campground at 10,000 ft to 11,200 feet the rest of the 27 mile trail is unknown.
Will there be shaded areas with snow drifts?
Will there be North facing slopes that the sun does not get to?
With only 19 days to go I am hopeful these 85 degree days are doing their job.
