Ascent Trip ReportSnowshoed up the main road from the turnoff on Angeles Crest Highway. The road was fully covered (one foot +) with snow. Had lunch on the cement steps of the lookout after kicking off the accumulated ice and snow. Construction is moving along, with sides and roof of the building now in place. Current expected completion date is now mid-January. Very pleasant weather, with no wind and excellent visibility. Mt. Baldy and many more mountains covered in snow. Absolutely beautiful. Lots of snowmen along the road up. People were obviously very busy over the weekend.
