Wednesday, 12/09/09 Sanitas

Got out with Sierra after work for a trip up Sanitas. Took it fairly easy on the up, not wanting to suck in too much cold air. It was a degree or two below zero and the wind was whipping pretty good on the upper half, creating some drifting snow and low visibility at times, but I was dressed well and was surprisingly warm.

Made the summit in 21:09, about a minute of that was waiting for Sierra while she pooped, peed and barked at deer (luckily I had her on leash during this time). Took the descent pretty mellow, as it was still somewhat light, but contrast really was terrible and it was hard to tell exactly where I was stepping (drifting/blowing snow was not helping). I eventually busted out the flashlight which helped bring out some definition in the trail.

Probably for good reason, I did not see another person the entire time. This might be the first time this has ever happened.
