|Peak:||Mt. Audubon (13er)|
|Date of Info:||05/25/2020|
Road to the trailhead is still closed. Talked to one of the park officials in charge or reopening... said they were planning on opening July 1st.
I started at 7am... wore hiking boots all the way to the trailhead (some snow on the road). Started post-holing all over the place, so ended up wearing snowshoes all the way to the peak. The route through the trees was pretty straight-forward. Plenty of existing tracks. Hardly needed any traction on the way down... snow was super sticky. I put on microspikes nonetheless. Minimal post-holing on the way down, though went up to my thigh maybe a dozen times.
All in all, beautiful day!
EDIT: Forgot to mention that the snow was rapidly melting. I was amazed how much had melted when I got back to the trailhead.
