Ascent Trip Report

Hiked with Dan and Samson for winter credit. We hiked Snowy, then drove over to do Kane. Dan was not in favor of doing a second fire tower because it was so late in the day and the sun would be setting soon. We went up and down the shorter trail. We missed sunset from the fire tower by only a couple minutes. The trail was trashed from postholers...nothing to preserve by wearing we left ours in the car. We put on microspikes and hurried to the summit. Dan was not happy about missing the sunset, hiking out in the dark (we had headlamps, of course), or the shitty trail conditions.
