My friend and I started this snowshoe journey a little after 9am on New Years Day...whatta way to ring in the new year, huh? Santa brought me snowshoes this year and this was my first venture in them. We parked across from the forest service tree farm and thats where we started. We basically just hiked the road all the way up then took a left onto a trail, just past mile marker 5. The last half mile was steep with switchbacks to the top. The sun was out and it was REALLY cold and soooo worth the hike. The views from atop are absolutely breathtaking!!!
Some other friends started a little later and one of them met up with us towards the top. Was a really awesome day. I was sore for about 3 days...but it was a good sore;-)
