We are still hanging in there on top. Currently, the crew is packing laundry up to the heli pad to get a supply drop. The conditions are too bad for the llamas to make it up for at least another week. The high yesterday was 25 with a low of 15. We heard from some folks who hiked down Trillium. They said it was slow going. The rhodo thickets are still an issue on that trail. The park service attempted to hike up Trillium and said the rhodo made it impossible to get through with their equipment. We are suggesting everyone use Rainbow until some of the snow melts off the trees.
