Ascent Trip Report

What is an easy drive up in the Summer has its challenges in the Winter. Was here about a week ago but it was too late in the afternoon with a lot of Snow to deal with so I left it alone after about 2 miles of hiking. Drove in last Night and to my surprise I made it to above 9000 feet in the Car, further than last week. What a difference a week can make, even though the Snow was still bad as it is too warm already even in the Night above 40 F. A short 4 miles this morning granted me access to the Summit with Knee deep Snow a places.

Happy Hiking, Josef
