I was out there Monday to Wednesday. Monday afternoon, I recall running across a soloist with a small pack as I was headed down toward Refrigerator Gulch. Was that you with the tattoo on his calf?

Re: Yet another LCW trip report

Mine fit well. Size 10 slips right over a thin pair of wool socks and my size 9.5 feet. They are comfortable inside my trail runners and do what they claim to do--keep my feet warm and dry in wet, col...
