Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Good luck… pick up truck would have been great. It was .7 from the trailhead where i followed all the tire tracks to… well snowmobile groomer decided today is the day they will start… that was not fun but it was short lived, then for the driving in tire tracks back to the half plowed part to pavement … more of a road walk for the rest of the winter is what i assume

Comments
Comments: Well i went solo today as everyone I know working on the ne67 in winter have done the peaks I am going after this week. I barebooted to the trailhead and saw snowshoe tracks! Then realized it was only 1 set and they were coming down only, meaning my smaller uphill steps did not work with them at all. So i put snowshoes on and was breaking the hard crust (started with -3 outside) and powder underneath. Once I broke treeline did the wind pick up. The track were gone and it was some rock, some ice and lots of drifts. It was hard in a few places to find the cairns but I was able to make it mostly on trail. Made it to the summit quick photo and then headed down to get out of the wind. It started to snow lightly and then before I knew it I hit the road again and barebooted back to the car. 60/67 winter.
