JoRayne and I headed out at 9 a.m. encountered snow around 3k ft. Strapped the S-hoes on slogged away for the remainder of the trip which was approximately 3-4 miles.

The snow pack was crusted over and would give way frequently so that factor really contributed to labor required to reach the top. We were the only ones to do so on shoes but a CC skier had made the journey sometime previously.

Of course the wind was whippin' on top but it was a clear day to enjoy the views. My GPS confirmed the 15.8 miles and the elevation gain stated above.

We returned to the truck around 5 p.m.; tired and jonezin for a food reward.
