|French Gulch was untouched with increasingly deeper snow the further up we went.|
A fun video clip of us topping 18 MPH laying fresh tracks along the trail. Excuse Zorro's minor blip about 20 seconds into the clip... This was clearly a lingering leftover from yesterday's visit from Planet Z; but it was the only blip of the entire day - phew, the aliens are gone :-)
