Healthy coat of snow from ~11,000' up. Trail is easy to follow from the trailhead to treeline. From there, I'm sorry to say, our tracks wandered a bit. Made it to ~13,000' before heading back down. Snow is loosely packed, generally mid-calf or less, with plenty of talus sticking out. Not sure how much good crampons or snowshoes would be until it's denser.

Aspens were glorious!

Thanks for the tracks     10/08/2013 12:12
We followed your tracks on Sunday (thank you for making it easier for us) and then continued to the summit. Was that you that left the TH shortly after 9 PM?
