Despite reports of cold and wind in the high country, Alan, Sarada, Jezze, and I head up toward Cameron Pass for some snowshoeing. Conditions look nice when we get there – greybird, warm, and calm. The avalanche danger is low all around today, so we try the trail up to Montgomery Pass. It’s a nice 2 mile, 1000-ft jaunt up to some well-tracked alpine slopes above treeline. We’re inspired to continue up to the windy ridge, and I briefly summit unnamed Peak 11408. On the way down I demonstrate the downhill snowshoe run, lose a shoe, and nearly faceplant for Alan’s waiting camera. Good times.
