Comments
Comments: Drive to lot was plowed and sanded. Logging roads and trail were easy to navigate with new snow ranging in depth from
3 to 12 inches. After the switchbacks, snow depth increased through the glades. Attempted to find the previous hikers base as snow depth was a couple feet stepping off of it. Successful at times. About .3 miles from the summit our real work began as there was lots of deep drifting. Take care if following our tracks at this point. On the way up, we entered some nasty spruce but were able to find the herd path for a nice easy return. Unable to open ice encrusted canister but took a couple pics. There were 3 of us packing out this trail. Fun adventure with the trio of Steve, Suzanne and Joanie.
