10 miles of hiking • 1500' elevation gain •
Glorious day in the snow. We started at the Frog Lake side and went up past the lakes. Trail # 482 from Upper Twin was untracked so we went up trail #495 from the north of the lake and took a short connector over to a more heavily traveled section of the #482 and from there up to Palmateer. Had lunch and birthday cake up at the top and basked in the warmth and views. Great day.
