From the TH at Echo Lake we follow the up-down-up Resthouse Trail into Mt Evans Wilderness for three miles to where it crosses a small saddle at 11000' somewhat past the start of its long climb to Lincoln Lake. There is a nice clearing here where we can eat lunch.  We return the way we came.  This route is protected from wind due to terrain and tree cover.  There will be new snow all this week until the weather breaks this weekend.  I am looking forward to great snow in better weather. 

For the TH commute we avoid most I-70 weekend traffic by using the Squaw Pass road between Evergreen and Echo Lake.

If there is huge snow this week and avalanche conditions are above moderate on trip day, we will go to lower elevation - probably Golden Gate Canyon SP.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
