7.2 km one way
11:30am - 5:00pm
Moderate to Challenging
What a great hike - once we got started. We got a little lost and spent more time driving. Not a busy hike. Saw about 8 people. Last part on the way there was on scree, steep uphill, windy, very cold but so beautiful. Looked down onto Ribbon Lake.
Looking back: Those are Merrell hiking shoes I have been wearing. There was no thought or even concern given to ankle support. At this time in my hiking life, I did not know about gaiters for keeping rocks and snow out of your shoes. I see I am getting ready to throw a snowball! I embraced hiking in snow early on.
