Today was a great day for a hike! Mt Sherman was warm (40‘s-50‘s) and the trail was pretty easy to access, even with the snow fields. I switched to my Garmond snow boots half way, worked well for traction. No snowshoes or microspikes needed. It rained, then snowed at around 3pm, so not sure how much accumulation, but with the temps we have been having, Im sure it will melt quickly. I was able to drive past the gate (12miles from 285), almost to the first mining building until the road was fully covered with snow. I was able to get to the summit in 1.20hrs and back down in an hour. Trying to beat that storm !
