Up to the Summit - Again

Last Saturday Jonathan called me up - more or less on a whim - and asked if I would be interested in summiting Silver Star Mt. that afternoon. It was a bluebird day and the snow conditions appeared to be pretty good up there (4,400 ft.). We planned to leave around noon.

Over all it was an awesome hike. We hit snow sooner than we had expected and had to park about 1.5 miles from the trailhead, but were still able to make excellent time, accomplishing the hike to the summit and back in about 4.5 hours. According to my gps reading we gained about 2100' in elevation, and in snow shoes that's no easy feat! Here are some photos from the hike.
