Ascent Trip Report

Started from Maple Springs Visitor Center at around 7 AM on a beautiful, 39 degree morning. Passed one group of hikers a mile up the road, then saw nobody until the way down from the summit. There was packed snow completely covering the dirt road past 4 Corners except for on a few exposed north-facing spots. Summit sign is missing again, as is the register. Views into the Holy Fire burn area were especially stark because you could see all the snow due to the lack of large vegetation.
