Bowman trail from Terraces campground


to Pole Canyon. Found deer at 9000"


As is the case on Gobblers, it started clearing near sunset.


I was interested in snow conditions on the Cabin Run.


I changed to Verts snow shoes at the Pole canyon-trail junction gully Solid snow on ascent from there.

The crust under an inch or so of fresh snow was mostly supportable on the up.

My attempt at Verts glissading on the down resulted in mixed success with several diggers(breakable crust).

Micro spikes will come in handy for future trail hiking until it actually snows.
