Comments
Comments: We arrived to find the gate closed and the road lightly snow covered. We encountered fog up to summer parking lot then we were greeted with an undercast at the summit. There were a couple spots that traction would not have been a bad idea, but we chose not to. For the most part the summit free of snow, but the winds were extremely strong which brought the wind chill with it. Over all it was a great day with great company.


We did post a video on YouTube if anyone is interested to see it. See link below.
