I was planning on going solo and Bob said he might be able to join and asked me to text him at 5:30am. When I did at 60 miles to Flag at 5:30, he was just a mile or two behind me. Nice! The weather could not have been nicer. No wind! This was my first time doing it and Bob is a veteran and champ! We both brought snowshoes, which in certain sections probably would've been a little more suitable. But we didn't bother to switch back and forth and just microspiked and cramponed all the way up and down.

We had to balance paw protection and traction for Wiski so we didn't put her booties on until we were close to the summit. Someone can steal my idea of designing a dog bootie with microspikes or crampons on! :) The dog we met on the way up had a torn toe nail or pad that was bleeding pretty bad.

The view on the summit was absolutely beautiful with clear winter air and no wind. A group of 5, two groups of 2, and a solo hiker came up. We probably hung out on the summit for over an hour. Most, if not all of them, took the summer trail back down. We came down the way we went up.

Bob is awesome! He was very considerate of a physical condition I have and set the pace accordingly. All in all, it was a great hike with great weather, scenery, terrains, and company! Wiski made a new friend too. She was ready to go home with Bob :)
