My Wife and I hiked the Pass after a fresh snowfall last week . It felt like we we're drawn into a beautiful Christmas card . Fresh white snow clung to the branches of the pines , occasionally depositing the powder on our heads and surrounding forest. The switchbacks seem never ending but it moderates the steepness to make an easier accent .
As we got within a few hundred yards of the Pass strong easterlies had whited out the trail . The views down the valley and associated glaciers is awe inspiring, magic .
The drive to the trailhead is a beaut journey on it's own.
