Comments
Comments: A number of rare occurrences aligned today to make for the perfect day on Tumbledown & Little Jackson! First, I had the opportunity to hike them in winter conditions without a long walk in, second, I had both mountains entirely to myself, third, there was almost no wind, even above treeline, & fourth, there was unlimited visibility in every direction. It really was an amazing day of winter hiking on the two peaks, and I even visited Little Jackson's North Peak again. If you're heading out at this point in the season, be sure to bring your spikes and winter gear, especially after tomorrow.
