Ascent Trip ReportA very nice Fall day for a hike up Government Peak. The weather was relatively calm, clear and in the upper 30's at the GPRA trailhead. The wind picked up at the summit and temps were probably down near 0. There was only snow for the last 800' - 1,000' vertical feet, which was hard packed and very easy to walk on and perfect for some really fun glissading. Couldn't have asked for better conditions.
