1 pointThe gate was closed when I went up to check things out today. Weird, as the upper road is clearly drivable. Bit of a bummer, as we had a mandatory later start time and the extra hiking killed our chance to put tool to ice. Ah well, still a lovely hike, and it was nice to be up there in the white stuff again.
