Not too much to say. Gwen and I wanted to head out. We picked Ingalls Pass. It's a beautiful area. I'd never been there with this much snow. Trail signs at the junctions were just poking out of the snow. With the two of us it was a lot of trail breaking in deep, soft snow. I'm still not comfortable on steeper snow and after a bit we called it a day. We did spend lots of time lollygagging around so it wasn't a complete waste of a drive. Trail at the TH parking area. Soon enough it will be impassible.
