Did this as a 3+days NOBO along with Red Hills. 4 of us left Peeley TH after dropping off vehicles at Doll Baby TH. We were a little apprehensive about the weekend forecast, but the day was beautiful and perfect weather for climbing up into the Mazzies. Lucky enough to have the trail steward for 23A along to guide us and clear downfall. Removed several logs throughout the day. Tread was in pretty good shape. There were a few stretches where snow was still on the trail from the storm that moved through the previous week. Made it to Bear Springs and camped for the night. We were pretty well protected from the wind but it was still a cold night. First time I've ever noticed the cold coming through my sleeping pad. Headed out bright and early Saturday morning. Found a nice place to have breakfast around 9. Ran into a couple from back East who were vacationing and decided to do part of the trail. They had nothing but good things to say about the trail and their experience! 2 of our team decided that they were going to go out when we reached Barnhardt TJ, so we wished them well and asked that they send HEAT up the mountain for us! Must have worked because we managed to dodge the snow AND rain! Since the clouds were moving in we did not spend time with downfall. Only removed what was quick and easy. Roger documented brush, downfall and tread issues for future work events. Stopped at Horse Camp Seep for water and headed to The Park to camp for the night. Nice camp area protected from the wind. We tucked our tents in under a large cedar canopy but the rain / slush found our tents anyhow. I got up for a potty run around 1 and found slush accumulated around the edge of my tent. UGH. Even so, this camp was warmer than the previous night at Bear Springs.
