Ascent Trip Report

Hiked up in snow from the picnic area as per R Hensley's report. Saw a cow moose and her two calves in a forested draw on the way down. Some steep, shaded areas might be problematic without traction when snow is hard but I was able to kick steps on a sunny, 45-degree weather day.
