2016-07-09  Route: Buffalo Peaks from the North
Posted On: 2016-07-09, By: CreekRunner
Info: The approach trail is completely dry. Once on the meadow approaching the saddle of E. Buffalo and 12,644 there is some mud from runoff water, but it is easily avoidable. Whenever descending W Buffalo to return to the meadow, there is some snow lingering in a couple gullies, but the snow is soft enough to kick sidehill steps in. Also, there is no summit register paper or lid anymore on E. Buffalo; All I found was a PVC tube inudated with water.

Info: The Buffalo Peaks look to be drying out very fast. Not much snow is still present on the peaks themselves. I cannot confirm what it‘s like in the trees with regards to snow cover. But everything above timberline is losing snow fast, only another week or so before they are bare of snow.

Info: Did the loop (E to W) yesterday and found an awesome game/cattle trail which got us west to east through the valley pretty efficiently and with a little cairned bushwacking from there we met up with the western logging road easily. Probably as efficient as it gets on this route. PM me for a gpx if you are interested. Good luck.

Info: Dry the entire way to the summit and over to West Buffalo. Descent from West buffalo had some narrow and avoidable snow fields crossing back over the NE side of West Buffalo, just above treeline.
