Route: Greeley Ponds Trail, Mt. Osceola Trail, (Mt. Osceola - East Peak), Mt. Osceola Trail, Greeley Ponds Trail

While the weather wasn't great, things did appear to be clearing up just a bit. Thus, I headed down the Kanc to hike East Osceola.

As seems to normally be the case, the Greeley Ponds Trail was muddy. The water crossings, a bit tricky in spring, were quite easy.

The Mt. Osceola Trail was generally dry, though the rocks were a bit slick. While there were some hazy views from the slide crossing, the summit was in a cloud.
