Got to the trailhead at 9:45 am. Sunny and blue skies quickly turned to 30-40 mph winds and snow at the top. Found the yurt for a short respite, then back down we went. Good amount of snow, crampons came in very handy. Fun hike in the snow! Almost liked it better than during the summer

  1. Ran into your group on the way down. I was the girl holding a little black and white spicy dog. Quite the weather up there. 😆
