there was some freshies up there (8 inches down to 9000 ft.)! about a 20 mile round trip with 8,000 vertical feet of climbing, in 14 long hours. parking is still at crofton ridge trailhead due to big snow drifts, leaving 4 extra miles of dirt road walking.
was able to skin all the way to the top of pikers peak. a couple of portages at the lunch counter.
totally sick! anyone who did not get enough of winter head to washington volcanoes now!
