|Lost and Found:
||brilliant blue sky day, a moderate number of people were going up as we came down. excellent powder snow had been tracked by barebooters; we followed in bb's, although the 6"-8" might want some to consider snowshoes (who knows after warm days this week?) most of the slabs above treeline were blown clear.|
views went all the way to Big George, clear as can be. chilly enough to not hang out at summit, though.
always an excellent day with friends.
