    My thoughts exactly Haemama.
    I am a very cautious hiker and have been reading and researching trails and snow hikes. I'm looking at hiking trails with worn paths through patches of snow and ice (you won't see cutting a path through snow or ice this year:). Idyllwild is my home area and I'm very familiar with quite a few trails up there and plan on exploring in hopes there is still a little ice/snow on flatter areas by the saddle that I can get comfortable on. I want to take baby steps, an be prepared if I run into snow and icy conditions on a trail.
