Coming down from the summit on Mt Wilson Road towards the Winter Creek Trail was interesting, quite a few spots with small rockslides and debris across the trail. It was still pretty cold at this point, ambient temps low to mid-30s at least the I was out of the wind :) (2020-03-15). Photo by Dale Hill.
