|Drizzly, Drippy FUN!|
|Our Blustery Turnaround|
|Doc Dropping In|
Fondly recalling this route from free-heeling days with sub-70 mm wide skis at the widest ski tip, we had a terrific time on our contemporary alpine touring gear with skis exceeding 100 mm at the under-foot narrowest width. During our ascent, we imagined the way back down would be hideous. But, we enjoyed the skiing all the way down to the Iditarod Trail, and the 2" fresh snow made the hiking more tolerable than we had imagined.
While the fresh snow made our hike out a lot easier, we still managed to get muddy boots hiking across the unfrozen meadow.
