Peak(s):  Uncompahgre Peak  -  14,309 feet

 Uncompahgre - Standard Route   

The road was free of snow to the parking area. There was a tree accross the road a few hundred feet before the parking area, but, assuming you‘re in a jeep to get that far, you can make it around to the left.

The lower part of the trail (first 1/2 mile) was free of snow. After that, be prepared to cross some large expanses of snow (oh the joy of post-holing) for the next mile. From there, the trail is buried until the final pitch.

It was a great hike and we had the hill to ourselves.
