Comments: The first mile has little to no snow, so we barefooted. After that snowshoes all the way until we returned to the last mile. One couple ahead of us kindly broke a nice track. Still pretty soft and a few drifts and not easy going until you start back down: Sunshine perfected his tele-snowshoe move. But luckily little to no ice. Not a bad snowshoe at all. Bluebird Day. Saw another hiker coming from the Lonesome Lake intersection, but that's it just 5 of us on the mountains.
