I will be at the Safeway at 6am. I have a Toyota tundra with space for 1 more if anyone needs a ride.

I'll be at Safeway by 6:00a if not a little sooner. My 225k+ miled 4 banger 4Runner needs a little longer to get up the pass.

Waggs,
225+ that thing has a long way to go. I had 360K on my last Toyota. Only 165K on my Tundra I feel like I have a new truck still.

Think I am all set for a ride now, but thanks for the offer.

Now I just need to get rid of this head cold I woke up with. Peak looks like it is getting some snow now.

We did it! Dave and I managed to pull through despite the strong winds, reached the top at 12.00pm, and were back at the car by 2.40pm. All in, it took us ~7.30 hours with stops. The company was good and everybody was very nice.

Thanks,
Natalie

p.s. Snowshoes were not needed on the trip, as the approach trail was hard packed, and up high the wind took care of the snow...
