The roads were finally clear and I did a short and lovely stroll with friends to check on a wildlife camera and look at tracks. We snowshoed, but they weren't really needed except for offtrail and a few random sinkholes. Wonderful day!

Went with some friends on a lovely meetup group hike. The roads were definitely bad in places. An accident had closed the westbound lanes of 26 completely and Hwy 35 was closed both directions from a car accident. We decided to just pull over at Barlow Pass Sno park and snowshoe down the PCT, and then take the cutoff down to Upper Twin Lake. There were no recent tracks on the cutoff trail to Palmatier Point, but there was a very obvious track heading up to Tri-County Ridge. The cutoff to Upper Twin lake was well tracked and the sunshine and blue skies broke out, just in time for the lunch at the lake. Great day!!

Beautiful way to bring in the New Year! Almost a foot of fresh powder on the trees and no wind. There is a rock slide almost all the ways to the falls, which is tricky in snow shoes, with occasional deep wells in the rocks. Fine going up. A little more interesting coming down. Good company and a perfect day.
