Ascent Trip Report

We started our day with the intent on hiking Street and Nye. Unfortunately when we got to Indian pass brook the water was too high and there was no way to cross. After searching along the riverbank for about 0.3 miles for an alternate crossing we finally decided to bushwhack back to the trail and hike Mt. Jo instead. We started up the Long Trail via the Rock Garden and enjoyed a fun icy climb up the trail. The skies were a mix of sun and clouds with some fairly strong winds on this very chilly day but we had some great views from the summit. We descended via the short trail and overall had a great day in the woods.
