Ascent Trip Report

Continued from Willey Summit along the Willey Ridge trail to Mount Field. There was a nice layer of snow on the ground and it was quite serene. We got to the peak of Field at about 2:00 and took some time to feed the Gray Jays. Ann let them have a peanut from her forehead and I placed a raisin on the brim of my hat. We started out quickly to try and make it to the Tom Spur before it was to late in the day.
