Comments: With the weather forecast of high winds and low temperatures for (Fri & Sat) elected to do only one night backpack trip instead of two nights. Davis Path parking lot was empty Friday morning at 7:30. Observed bear paw prints on the lower section of the trail near the private homes. Light snow and ice on the trail up to the area of the Mt.Crawford side trail. Crawford was covered with granular snow and ice with great views. Pitched camp for the night off trail in a hollow to escape he raging winds. After our camp was set up we hiked down to the Stairs Col junction. Trail conditions was granular snow. Max depth 2-4 inches. Beautiful views from the exposed ledges along the way. Checked out the location for the long gone shelter at the junction of trail to Mt. Resolution. Found what could of been the location for the lean-to in the steep terrain. There were several primitive camp sites along Davis path in the same location. On the way back to camp gathered some water from the trail to use for dinner and hot drinks. Friday night had clear skies with off and on strong winds. Temps at the camp were 10 degrees F in morning. After some hot drinks we broke down camp and started back down trail at 6:30AM. We did not see a soul for the 24 hours we were out there.
