|Peak:||Mt. Princeton (14er)|

Broke trail in ankle to knee deep powder to about 12k, beginning of the ridge to Tigger, where we stashed our snowshoes. The transient nature of our efforts cannot be more apparent as big chunks of the road had melted out by the time of our descent. Our tracks melted and then refroze. Snowshoes now are likely not needed untill after 11k. The ridge between Tigger and Princeton still holds a lot of snow - a mix of hard pack, windblown powder and rocks, not enough to justify bringing snowshoes, but be prepared for a fair amount of postholing on the ridge.
