A scary description in the guidebook almost convinces us to skip one of the prettiest and most unique sections of the trail just before Sonora Pass. To our benefit we risk it and enjoy some incredible views and a great glacade down to the pass.
Firmly planted in the adventurous spirit we strike off the trail after the pass to catch another long slide in the snow. That Sonora Peak glacade was our last excursion over 10,000 feet. We resume the dreaded snow-cup swagger at lower elevations.
