|2011-06-19||Route: Venable Creek Trail
Info: Summer hiking conditions with a few, very small, patches of snow that were easily walked through or around. No need for snow gear of any kind: gaitors, ice axe, micro spikes, snowshoes, etc. Beautiful trail, some wild flowers were in bloom and the aspen trees have leaved out. Venable Lake is completely thawed with some big fish swimming about.
|2011-06-14||Route: Comanche-Venable Loop
Info: I climbed Pt 12,873, Venable, Spring and Comanche. I approached via Venable Creek and descended Comanche Creek. Snow is not a problem and can be avoided in the few cases where it is across the trail. Didn‘t do Phantom Terrace but I could see all of it and it looks completely snow free.
