Intermittent snow – not hard to cross

Beautiful hike. The only real snow that’s left is just  above the lodge and then at the summit. All of the areas that I encountered that were still covered in snow were easy to cross because of the many footprints you can follow. There’s no snow at all at all going down the backbone. I brought poles and spikes, but never needed the spikes. I will say, that I most likely would have used them if I had opted to go down the bowl, but I went down Devil’s Backbone instead.
