I was in the cloud deck, alternated between rain and snow. Couldn't see more than 100 meters in any direction. Met only a pair of bow hunters. I'll return another day for the views.
5 November 2013: a repeat with better clarity & views. passing snow flurries alternating with sunshine. 3 moose easily spotted - they stand out well in snowy leafless aspen forest. No other humans, tracks or otherwise.
With Moogie737 from Big Mountain Pass. There were a few lingering snow patches but most of the trail was clear. We also bushwhacked to P7824 near the start and went 3 miles past Bald Mountain to P7779 and then returned back to the pass.
Nice hike and met no one going but ran into a SLC hiking group of 15 people on the way back and three mountain bikers. Big tree down across the trail that had to be scrambled over (crux of the hike) :-)
