Feb11-went to little lakes valley...gate closed at snopark.5 mile walk on the road with groomed hard packed snow to mosquito flat.
From MF onwards it was deep snow-2ft and put onmy snowshoes.Snow wasnt powder but not bad considering the heat wave.The valley looked awesome with all the recent snow.

Feb12-minaret vista...walked a mile or so to vista from the chairlift area.Hardpacked groomed snow on road/trail.Beautiful view from vista.

Went only to sabrina basin from aspendell and closed gate.snow melting fast on road sabrina basin had plenty of crusty snow ...

Beautiful picture
"On this proud and beautiful mountain we have lived hours of fraternal, warm and exalting nobility. Here for a few days we have ceased to be slaves and have really been men. It is hard to return to servitude."
