Ascent Trip Report

Showshoe with Maria. There was plenty of snow, though it was thinner above treeline, thanks to the wind. We had light snow for most of the hike, and it was a little breezy above treeline. We tried going for Papoose on the way back, but snow on the rocks made footing difficult. Maybe some other time.
