 Easy Morning Hike  

Start Time: 7am
Summit Time:
Distance: 4.5miles

When we arrived at the parking lot there was only one other car there. The temps were a little cooler than expected above 12,000'. We packed the trunk full of everything but all we took with us was the ice axes. We didn't need gaiters, micro spikes or snowshoes. After reaching the saddle between CMP and Flora, the trail was fairly clear of snow and nothing more that ankle deep.

(**NOTE** This isn't Mt. Flora I'm videoing from, we walked past Flora and had to go over to the other hill to tag it.)
