Ascent Trip Report

A little nip in the air at minus 13 degrees had us scurrying down the trail to start. Not surprisingly, the forecast was wrong! Again. Cloudy with high winds turned out to be glorious blue sunny skies with light winds. This was a classic winter hike with great views, and the feeling that we were right on the edge of some serious cold once we climbed above treeline. Global warming took the day off, but it's subsequent lack of snow was quite evident. We all carried snow shoes but never needed them. Thanks to Mike and Don for their shepherding work in front and rear. Mr. Fuller also makes a mighty mean brownie! Enough for all on another great day in the mountains. 16 Participants: Wayne Richter, Cecelia Elwert, Dan Forbush, Mike Fuller, David Charles, Rick Lennox, Bill Bechtel, Maureen Laskey, Phil Hazen, Bob Stahl, Don Berens, Patrick Conners, Terry and Courtney (my little girl) Marshall, Melody Hoffman, and Ron Lester.
