After a crazy mild winter, we finally have had some cooler temps in 2019. Saturday morning, we reached this milestone for the first time in 3 years.
@Ugly - Do you use snow gaiters? We got a foot of snow here yesterday too, but the wind chill was -20 to -30F this morning. The wind and temperatures are crazy now. Glad you got outside! I might have to dig out the goggles and full face mask for hiking tomorrow.and oddly my feet are still wet?
when going on a serious hike, yes... last minute lunch excursions of the unprepared type? no.@Ugly - Do you use snow gaiters? We got a foot of snow here yesterday too, but the wind chill was -20 to -30F this morning. The wind and temperatures are crazy now. Glad you got outside! I might have to dig out the goggles and full face mask for hiking tomorrow, I can't sit inside two days in a row.
@danger02ward, did you climb that north ridge?Always love to visit the Maybird gulch and see the spectacular views of the mighty Pfeifferhorn in the winter.

Tractor Man! Oh wait that is our other BCP supporter....Seems winter waited to the end to give us the business here. Another ~6 inches last night. Spent a couple hours clearing my driveway (1/4 mi long and kind of a complicated mess in the building site itself) today. Calm, clear winter day, the kind that's been rare this winter. Lots of grey skies this year, it seems.View attachment 75234
