Details

We will snowshoe off east Guanella Pass Road on the Abyss Lake trail.  Depending upon conditions (I'm scouting this on Saturday), we will snowshoe in 2-1/2 to 3 miles, stop for lunch, and then return.  Most elevation gain is in the first mile but the grade is not severe.  There may be one ice/water area to cross.  Bring snowshoes, poles, ten essentials, and layers.



 



 




Notes

For those who are interested, we'll enjoy coffee and/or ice cream when we return to our meeting point.  




Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
