Snowshoe Hike – Chief Mountain (11,709 ft)

Clare & Linda Summit Chief Mountain
Linda and I snowshoe hiked to the summit of Chief Mountain (11,709 ft). It was a gorgeous blue sky winter day. The snowshoe was steep, with easy route finding.

We had a lot of fun coming back a different way. We plunged through knee deep powder in the backcountry and summited a nearby peak which Linda had not done before. It was a nice day to be in the mountains. Linda did awesome, which is why she has such a big smile in the pictures!
