Despite the forecast of a warm, sunny day, it was still 19 degrees and a blue cold as Andrew straps on his snowshoes.
A nice portrait of Andrew and companion Dixie up the trail
Co-leader Roger chats with Catherine in a spot of sunshine. Notice our co-leader has removed his snowshoes in the relatively packed trail.
Meantime, the rest of the crew is taking a break.
Susie, the other co-leader, center of photo, has already stripped off her shell. Climbing a lot warms the body.
Sharon, in the rear, listened to the leader. Always bring a map, even if you are not the leader.
Saddle Peak is the prominent peak on the Bridger ridge.
A long view toward the Bridger Range.
Ah, the lunch spot. Bob is chatting with Catherine while Susie looks on.
Andrew and Dixie enjoy lunch. What a view spot, huh?
Bob and Gail climbed a bit higher to get an even better view.
Marcia, Sharon, and Sharon all strike a pose at lunch.
Bob (with hands on his hips) seems to be saying to the co-leader Roger (in the blue jacket): Uh, isn't it about time you got your butt up and have us start heading back?
Heading down in splashes of sun.
Susie asked everyone to strike a pose for this final photo. We made the 3 mile, 1000 foot descent, in an unbelievable 1 hour flat.
