 Democrat, Cameron and Bross  

Hike round trip time : 4hr 30 min.

I started hiking around 7:30 am with my dad. The trail had light snow on it all the way to the summits. The snow never came above mid-shin. It was extremely gusty at the top! 40-60 mph winds (estimate). I was walking at a 50-60 degree angle to keep from blowing over. Got mild frostbite on my nose due to lack of thermal and wind protection. Couldn't pass the Cameron, Lincoln saddle due to wind.

It was definitely hike-able last week; not sure about now. I'm sure that's my last 14er of the year.
