It was a bit of an impromptu hike. We needed a workout, weather conditions were meh, but it felt so good to be out there it was worth it. A few patches of ice started below treeline, then right before we broke out the trail became moderately snow covered.  Should have brought the crampons for the descent from Mailbox – microspikes were okay but we had to stop frequently to unball the snowy mix that collected on the bottoms.
