Ascent Trip Report

Winter 4K #3 for me! Hiked Pierce with two buddies of mine from community college (winter 4K #1 for both of them). Trail was hard packed, thus snowshoes stayed on the packs all day. The views were cloudy to the north but better to the south. Opted for a detour on the way down, so we walked/buttslid to the Mizpah Hut, ate lunch there, and then took the Mizpah Cutoff and Crawford Path back to the lot off Mt. Clinton Rd.

A good day with great company!
