Finally, some snow! I didn't take or feel the need for snowshoes--on the lower portion of the route, the snow was mostly slightly above my ankles. I post-holed several times in the willows, but snowshoes wouldn't have been much help. On the ridge, the snow was quite wind-blown; there are some cornices developing but these sections of deeper snow can be avoided. I didn't see any ice and didn't take my microspikes out of my pack.

**I know the forecast is for more snow this weekend, but hopefully these pictures can give you an idea of where the older snow is.**
