went up pretty early today.without an early start postholeing would be inevitable. the last mile or so of the colorado trail has a lot of patches of snow along the trail which should get pretty muddy in the coming week.the mt massive to treeline also has patchs of snow. you can avoid the vast majority of the snow patchs along the trail but not all.once you get to treeline you come across the biggest snowfield you'll have to cross(pic 1). i postholed a handful of times but it wasnt to bad because i put on my gaithers. late in the day may be another story.
