That was the easiest hiking on Alum that there's been since I've started care taking. It's all been packed down very well, but it is still very, very icy in spots. Been a lot of people walking around this week so far, completely different up here with others up here!
I have a buddy that I've worked with in Alaska the past few summers that will be traveling with me this year. It's looking to be like March 9th is when I'll be posting my last post.
Dan, I'll add up that snow total here in the next few days and let you know.
And, I'm not sure what the bottom of trillium looks like for sure at the bottom since it's been a few weeks since I've been down there, but when I was at the bottom last, There was hardly any sign of there being snow at all. But we did get some snow since then, but it's also been warm now for a while.
Never used a GPS while hiking before.
Around the 13th or so, the new crew will be hiking up and soon after the helicopters will start flying in new supplies for the year.
