Trip Report/Photos
Featured Photo

We started the hike 25 minutes late as our trip leader went to the wrong trailhead.

The weather was seasonal with temps in the mid 20's. We did about a mile in brand new snow.

Our hike took us to a vista where we enjoyed some tasty chocolate truffle courtesy of Jeff.

The trail was pretty deserted saved for another hiker, one cross-country skier and a little black mouse.

We closed the day at the Van Trapp brewery.

Many thanks for all who signed up.
