Comments
Comments: Beautiful loop hike up in Evans Notch. We ascended via White Cairn, which was a good call... due to the steep pitch along the cliffs just below Blueberry Mtn. Hillsounds were perfect for that pitch. Conditions were crusty today. We alternated between traction and snowshoes...depending on the strength of the snow crust.

Nice day out with Steve, 'Skipper,' Karen M., Karen & Ken R., Lew D., Gale & George C., and Tina M.
