Trip Reports
January 1, 2006
Snowshoe Mt. Elmore

Jeff, Michael, Norman, Reidun, Andrew, Paul, and Ed got a comfortably late start on on the Elmore Mountain Trail on New Year's Day, hiked to the foundation, and had lunch. While we ate, Jeff made a quick trip to the tower, since he wanted to ride back with the hikers who were headed back to the cars. Jeff, who did not use crampons, remarked that the trail was icy and difficult and lacked a guard rail. Paul, Ed, and Norman went up to the tower after lunch; Paul & Ed climbed to the top for a quick look. The day was warm and pleasant, although cloudy.

The summit was in a cloud of icy mist, and the tower was coated with a thick frost.
