Donner Peak  Sucess!

About four feet of good snow. Shoed most of the way up, climbed the last twenty feet of bare rock to summit. Windy!

A hike worth repeating  Sucess!

We decided to break in new snow shoes and gear we were going to use on future hikes. Gorgeous hike and views...was a lot of fun on snow shoes. Weather was good, brilliant sunshine and a great workout to boot. This is one of my favorite hikes so far. My husband and I have been to this one quite a few times.

Summit via West Face/West Ridge  Sucess!

Snow a plenty. Determined to see the summit without snowshoes on the approach. At times would have stretches of 20-30 yards of stepping into post holes, many past the knees, one fun-filled step at a time. But the top is glorious. I've loved this neck of the woods all my life, having learned to ski at neighboring Sugar Bowl.

Don Don  Sucess!

The summit area is pretty complex, and it took me a while to find the actual summit.

Snowshoe Hiked  Sucess!

Took a really steep way up. I don't recommend it!
