Route: Mt. Tecumseh Trail, Sosman Trail

Trails were basically a well packed sidewalk, top to bottom. Though barebootable at the moment, light traction or snowshoes help make the ascent easier. It should be noted that the way most folks go to the summit (left at the junction with the crooked summit sign) is technically the Sosman Trail. The Mt. Tecumseh Trail to the summit (right) is not broken out for barebooters. Snowpack is probably 1 to 2 feet with a decent crust for snowshoe bushwhacking.

Nice sunrise over the undercast this morning.
