The days are warming up nicely. The high yesterday was 44. As you can imagine it was plenty warm to melt the snow. The nights are a different story. The low last night was 21. This makes for an icy mess. The trails are extremely slick. I highly recommend all hikers to purchase ice walkers for a hike in these conditions. All of the roads and trails are open. Just be careful and take your time. Make sure you are drinking plenty of water. I have seen a few cases of dehydration over the past week. Even in the colder temperatures, you need to make sure to re-hydrate.
