Ascent Trip ReportFour of us decided to take on Box Elder after a nice late spring storm dumped about a foot of snow on the summit. Actually, it was more like a foot deep drift of snow, because in wind sheltered sections, the ground was bare, but in other places, the snow was very deep and windswept. It was neat to see the drifts built up on the gnarly pine trees on the high ridge line. We were able to reach the summit late in the day, and we got some great pictures in the low evening sunlight.
