S. Boulder and Bear

9 miles
3,200 vertical
3 hrs RT

I was expecting better weather and since it was not so great outside, I was mentally reluctant to commit to a long walk. Oh well, just glad I can do it and there was really nothing else to do anyways. Sierra and Allison dictated the pace and they both moved pretty well today. There was a surprising amount of fresh snow. Not deep, just more than I expected and we were on packed snow most of the day (traction was surprisingly good though). Bumped into Buzz and Lisa near the saddle and chatted with them for a while, then an old friend from U-Bikes on the way down from Bear. Small town.
