2-17-12: Started 6:40 am. There was about 2-3 feet of snow on the lower part of Baldwin gulch road and about 3-5 up higher. Dow low there was a packed trail, and I was able to walk without snowshoes the first 1.5 miles. Up higher the snow was deeper and looser, and thus I had to uses the snowshoes. Once above treeline, I stayed as high as possible to avoid crossing a couple of suspicous tougues of snow, and then stayed on the high point of the ridge to reach Antero's summit by noon. Down by 4 pm. Great day!!! Janet Lightburn
