|Looking at a patch of snow high up on Peak 9. About 2,000 feet of hiking & climbing and we'll be there!|
We started the hike in town (the left image) and hit our high point in this patch of snow (right image).
- 7.3 miles roundtrip.
- 1,800 feet until our toes first touched snow.
- 2,000 feet until we were in the large patch high up on Peak 9.
- Ascending 2,000 feet in 3.3 miles before taking a little easier route down - STEEP!
|On arriving at our first small snow patch, Zorro's thoughts, "Cool, tasty - YUM!"|
|Max says, "Rub your head - nice & cool!"|
|"Good idea bro! Ahhh, cool!" declares Zorro.|
|"Do the whole body! Rub a dub snow!" exclaims Max.|
