|Peak:||Kelso Mountain (13er)|
|Date of Information:||04/24/2013|
Not enough of a trip for a full report, but hopefully enough info for some conditions.
My buddy and I reached the bottom of the Grays and Torreys trail at about noon, and set-off up the road. We didn't have snowshoes, and I wasn't too concerned. I just kind of wanted to scout the area, and see if it might be possible/safe to try and hike Kelso this weekend.
The road had been driven up about 300 feet, then the tire tracks stop. There were a few pair of ski tracks running through the road, but otherwise, it was pretty desolate.
We made it to the Bridge at the Grays and Torreys in about 2 hours, but were too burned from post-holing to continue. It was a much needed workout since a lackluster winter.
Snow shoes weren't necessary, but they are definitely helpful
