First "real" day out in the backcountry (our little tiny tour down one of the lower back roads when the gate was closed all day doesn't totally count...) and it was AWESOMEEEEEE. Such great snow conditions for so early in the season, deep and powdery, yum.

We headed up towards Pan face with hopes of making it up to Muir, but visibility deteriorated quickly, so we changed course to Mazama Ridge instead. We always have a fun time in that area, and the trees really helped with route finding in the mists.
