Well, Snow's in the forecast starting tonight. The trail is solid ice, very very slippery, where it's not ice it is a river, like the pictures below. It took 2h 30m down, and 2h 15m back up, I was able to grab lunch with a friend in town before heading back up. And of course I love winter weather, Here at the end of March i'll be starting to hike a trail where i'll be in the sun and burnt for 6 mos straight, i'm enjoying my winter time for now. I've only got about 30 or so more days up here.
