As soon as there's ice up there and before there's too much snow

The only time you can get on this, it seems, is early season before the Bird opens. I'll do it as soon as it's fat...

This looks like a pretty moderate outing, but I'd like to hit in when there's ice.
In addition, I'd like to hike the "Red/White, Red/White", the Bullion Divide, or possibly the whole Cottonwood Ridge after we get a good sunny spell after Wednesday's storm. Any interest?

We chatted for a bit, turns out he is 86 years old and makes the trek up to the large boulder at the south end of the lake once a week religiously. Pretty impressive to see someone like that have an incredible amount of dedication. Very curious if anyone else has run into him up there. One thing he said, which I think a lot of us can relate to, is "It sure beats the hell out of staying at home watching tv."
