Comments
Comments: So I turned around because the trail was soft. A bunch of snow fell on the higher elevations, and breaking trail is tiring. But otherwise, it's pretty good.

It got to the point where I ran out of gas. I wanted to summit, but after a bit, that desire went away. That said, a few groups will make this into Grade-A monorail in short order. Sunday's hikers will find a great trail.

Photos are on my blog, as always.
