We meant to camp out at Oak Flat on Christmas night, but the freezing temps convinced us that grabbing a hotel room would be slightly more comfortable. We picked a real dive, which was an adventure all its own! Shared a glass of wine and some other snacks, and drifted off to sleep, only to awaken to quite a nice morning!

After a quick breakfast down the street, it was off to Picketpost. We accidentally wandered down the wrong trail at first, thanks to a deceptively-placed log on the trail. Eventually got back on track, and worked our ways up the mountain. The scramble was fun, although one man descending lost his footing twice and almost biffed right off a cliff. :scared: So glad the remainder of the trip was uneventful. We saw small patches of ice, but nothing we had to watch out for. The top had some pretty beautiful views. We had a quick lunch/snack, then worked back down, meeting Bob along the way! Watched as the sun set once we got back to the car. Good weekend of hiking!

Just a note: I definitely would not recommend dogs for this hike. There are several sections where I needed to use my hands to climb or scramble -- I just don't see most dogs doing this easily, unless they are small/light enough to be picked up easily.
