Comments
Comments: A beautiful brisk day to be out. We didn't get as much snow as I thought we would, maybe 6 to 8 inches and fluffy. 3 of us broke trail going counter clockwise. It was cold and windy on the summits so we didn't linger, and felt good so we completed the whole loop, bagging 3 peaks. We didn't see anyone else the entire day until the road walk when we were almost to our car and a couple came up behind us with butt sleds attached to their packs. I'm now done all the 4k's all in winter in that area.
