May 30, Vesper Pk, Mountain Loop Hwy
« on: 06/01/09, 08:32 AM »

Drove to about .5 mile of the trail head. Hiking shoes were worn up into Wirtz basin. The logs at the second stream crossing have been tossed aside, so we had to go up stream searching for a way across. John, Gordy, and I went higher than necessary, while Craig and Spike found a clever route up down and around rocks and logs.

Clouds kept the temps and snow reasonable, although the top was a bit slurpee like, and pollen slowed things down lower.
