It was fun meeting all of you today, thanks to Derek for organizing this. And thanks to Tom the snowplow for breaking trail the whole way.

Happy trails,

Tim

+ a huge 1! Especially the breaking trail. You probably saved our second group at least an hour and probably much more than that. Mucho THANKS!

I had a lot of fun today. It was great to meet everyone. I think we ended up with 8 total, everyone summiting! I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this was probably the most winter visitors Platte Peak has had in one day for a while.

Tim-Tom-Carol: You guys were amazing breaking that trail so fast! How long did you end up waiting on the summit?

I was curious about that, too.

Hi all,
I'd say we were on the summit for toooo long! ha It was to cold to be up there, but it was probably 20 minutes or so. Thanks Derek for organizing this. I've wanted to see the Ben Tyler trail for awhile now and I plan to go back there (hopefully this summer) to run. It was nice meeting all of you!

Cheers,
Ulla (aka: Carol)

It was a fun day yesterday. As others have said, huge thanks to Tom for breaking trail. At least most of the trail was below treeline, that wind on the summit was a little annoying. At least we didn't have to deal with it for too long since the trees were so close. Nice to meet everyone.
