Special Thanks to Guest Trip Reporter WxMan:

Cars parked at the Alpental road with a parking lot full of snow,
All ready by 5:45 and we were off with a resounding: “Lets go!”
Venturing into the snow-filled Commonwealth, the group made good time,
Even the snow-banked creek crossing, proved relatively benign.

Regrouping on the western banks; the true climb began,
Initial checks of the time showed a pace like we’d ran.
Dogs and hikers alike, barreled up the slope toward the saddle,
Gained the ridge and turned right, post-holes weren’t much a battle.
Each one in the group on the lookout for Bear-prints in the snow…

Topped-out on the ridge; this thing’s up-high, not down-low.
Nice views abound, with sunlit-vistas East to Kendall and Red,
And pleasant mild temperatures made for a speedy downward-head.
Back to the bottom, and into each car. Down to the Pour House, all before dark!
