Failed attempt at Audubon today.  Turned around on the ridge around 12,000 feet due to very strong winds (much stronger than forecast) and low/no visibility.  I was able to ride my bike to within a quarter mile of Brainard lake.  There was about 6 inches of fresh snow on top of hard pack snow in the trees from the Mitchell lake trailhead. 

I broke trail to the ridge so there is a decent path now, none existed this morning.  Snowshoes were needed today but  they may not be necessary now.  I don't have any updates on the ridge to the summit as I didn't see the mountain all day.  Below are pictures of the view from Brainard and the turn off to the Mitchell lake road.  My camera froze up so I don't have any other photos.  Hope this helps someone!
