Ascended South Slopes route on Lackawanna. Followed the ridge to 13,660 then continued to follow the ridge southward to the next highest point, I believe it's Pt 13,2xx. From this point, descended down a gentle drainage back to CO 82 and followed the road back to the TH for an enjoyable loop. Not a whole lot of snow on south aspects - certainly not enough for snowshoes, ice axe, traction. Boots and trekking poles sufficed. Appreciably more snow on the short traverse from Lackawanna to 13,660, but mostly avoidable. Road is almost completely dry to the TH (couple little icy patches, but nothing significant) and Indy Pass is still open as of Sunday 10/31.
