Ascent Trip Report

We started out on a very cold morning at 9 a.m., temp 18 degrees. It was continuous snow all the way from the parking Trailhead to the summit. Fortunately snowshoers had packed the snow down and we had packed conditions all the way to the summit. We met Steve H. on the summit and he had two very cold dogs with him but we had one of our own, Oq'r. Even though it was cold and a rather gray day, it was a great hike and terrific conditioner for us. After the hike, we stopped at JDawgs in Orem and enjoyed one of the better hot dogs a person can buy, highly recommend them.
