5.2 miles roundtrip with 2150 feet of elevation gain.
Alex posted a trip report of this hike on her blog a couple days ago. Click here to see the trek from her perspective.
Here are my photos from this hike -- as you can see, there wasn't much snow on the ground considering it was the end of January. Still, there was enough of the powdery stuff to enable butt-sliding on the descent.
We had a Jarlsberg cheese on the summit...not quite the right cheese for this mountain since the "J" in the cheese is pronounced as a "Y," but we have time to find a real "J" cheese before we grid this out.
|These rocks should be covered in snow right now.|
|Summit, straight ahead.|

|What happened to the cairn that used to be here?|

|Cheese on the 48!|

|Back at the trailhead...so many cars!|
Always good to get out in the woods.
See you on the trails!
