Comments
Comments: needed snowshoes the entire trip. After summiting, on our return down the mountain, in some areas our tracks were obliterated with the drifts already (less than an hour) Had to look for the white blaze to determine which direction to go. There was a squall/blizzard with gusty winds as we were getting ready to leave the tower. We left our goggles on for about a mile. Great hike! We love winter
