TH to Devil's Playground
Winter TH, gate is closed.
Bootpack on the road to summer TH.
From there, I usually go through the campground, it's a bit shorter.
But there were tracks on the normal trail and campground.
Lower part of trail has been hiked, but it was unconsolidated snow, so, kind of a bootpack, kind of not.
Didn't use snowshoes at all.
Put on traction at treeline. Some postholing, some nearly grassy areas. Tracks didn't last in the wind.
Top looks pretty wind blown.
