Looks like you guys had a great time! Was there any snow left on the trail and what was the pinnacle like?
Sparse snow at the beginning of the trail changed to all snow (very solid-no snowshoes needed) through the trees and onto the ridge. Maybe halfway up the ridge it stopped. Summit pinnacle was bone dry and snow free.
Better colors and composition than mine from same area.
Thanks for the nice words. What a great area, eh? Neat, weird rock formations. Had a great day there that day. Happy holidays,
