Comments
Comments: I had the trails and peaks all to myself today. Temps from 30 to 40 with some wind at both summits. High overcast clouds cleared off as I got back to my vehicle at 2PM. Frozen trail in the morning and the snow pack softened up after 11AM. Barebooted to the Flume Slide Trail Junction then put on snowshoes to both peaks and back down to the Bike Path. A nice mid week hike.
