Comments: 2-4" new snow yesterday. Being first on trail, we snowshoed from Basin herd path, up Liberty, Flume, back to Liberty, and across to Little Haystack. Especially needed snowshoes on the Liberty-to-LH section, and still need them. Really nice snowshoe track right now. Once on LH we switched to Hillsounds and wore them the rest of the day. Enough traffic on OBP that snowshoes were not needed today.

MWO forecasted high winds, but by midday they had mellowed to the 20s or so, w/bright sun and blue sky. Saw only 3 people all day.

Thanks to the 3 ladies in the parking lot who gave us a ride and thus saved us 2 miles on the bike path. :)
