I can see grass for the first time in almost two weeks. It poured rain most of the night. We received .7" of rain. The high yesterday was 39º with a low of 27º. As you can imagine, this makes for a slippery mess. Until the temperature warms up, things are a bit slick around here. I did have hikers come up Alum yesterday. I believe at the moment Alum and Rainbow are your best options. I have also had experienced hikers come out the Boulevard. It is going to be extremely slow going if you choose the Boulevard trail. That trail is mostly north facing and does not get much sun. There are going to be dangerous sections of ice on this trail. Please do not attempt this trail if you are NOT prepared. I hope with the warmer temperatures moving in, we will see some dandelions before long.
