C2C snow report (11/23/13)

Postby eric1234 » Sun Nov 24, 2013 8:10 pm

- snow level: between 5,000 and 6,000 ft
- 1-3 inches above 7,000 ft
- snow was getting compacted and slightly icy on the trail on the way down, microspikes recommended
- Keep in mind that another storm may arrive later this week
- Whoever is dropping Kit Kat wrappers on Skyline, please stop
- I also visited Mt. St. Ellen's on the way up. The register and sign are in good condition and have been moved to the highpoint by a previous party

Wow. Gorgeous. I've never done Skyline in the snow. That looks really cool. (no pun intended -- really)

Splendid hike and photos.

This one is really a treat, and looks like it is out of a film by Victor Fleming or Peter Jackson:

Traipsing through the Magical Bushes of Aeropedie

sad so much of that burns off before next storm and the storms are so small. pray for a good snow this year that turns skyline into the true fun she deserves. its been too long. the picture of the manzinita? its so fun when you cant see the manzanita...

Nice pics Eric
