Comments
Comments: Good shakedown winter hike. Early winter conditions with a nice dose of penetrating chill from the west on the summit. Dark blue storm clouds evident approaching from the west. Everything is about to change with the storm and the nice crusty trail will be buried, if the forecast is correct. Kestrel reading: forgot to bring it.
