We will do an out and back trip along the Meridian Trail which will take us into the Mt. Evans Wilderness area.  We top out at a ridgeline in the vicinity of Mt. Rosedale.  There is a nice trip description at the following website:

Depending on road conditions, we may be forced to park 1/2 mile from the actual trailhead and walk in to the trailhead.

Please bring snowshoes, Micro-Spikes and the 10 essentials.  Gaiters are also highly recommended.  Please be prepared to carry your showshoes as we may not need them at the start of the trip.

Please inform me privately if you have any medical issues that I should be aware of..
