Nice day out, fairly deep snow everywhere, but not falling. The trail was easy to follow and packed in from use. Sunny everywhere else but Girdwood (fog persisted above). Steady upward and secluded hike with tall trees and a pleasant winding path through the woods. Running water from the creek can be heard throughout most of the hike.
