Season's Greetings!

Started at about 9:30 AM and temps in the high 30’s. Hiked through a beautiful winter wonderland! Trail is well packed out. We put on our spikes at the start and wore them all the way up and back. Lots of nice hikers out today. Summit was rather cold and windy. Another great trip with the gang including Dave, Ricardo, and Jim.  Home by 2pm!
