Ascent Trip Report

1st winter hike for the 2016-17 season. Went with Cheryl Ann , Deirdre ,Kristhyna , Brian & Anthony. We chose Mt Hale as figured it would be a fairly hike for me .We got to end of Little River Rd at 8 & meet everyone & started our hike around 8:30

Temps were in the 20's when we started & was a little over cast.Sun did come in & out all day & even snowed.Got to N. Twin TH & started up . We almost took wrong cut off to Fire Wardens Tr but thanks to having tracks in my GPS we found the correct spot...Up to Hale

We all enjoyed hiking this trail & like me we like the summit of Hale & it didn't dissapoint me again .It was beautiful on top .

Spent a few min on top & started down.On way down we hit a few snow squalls & sometimes it really snowed hard ..Back & the car at 3:30 7hrs & 9.2 miles ...what a great day
