Plan A was a bust due to weather. Plan B didn't really materialize until late Friday evening as there were many suggestions but finally one stuck. 5:30am meet and head south. After a long day of work this meant not much sleep but I was looking forward to it nonetheless. We arrived at Miller Creek Trailhead about 8am and were hiking shortly thereafter.

Within a mile we crossed paths with a young lady who was turning back. She asked us if we were going to the Peak. Yes we replied and asked what she was doing. She said she was going to the peak also but had a run in with a couple cows blocking the trail. We shrugged it off and said come on along. Just around the corner were two large black bulls. I now understood a little better. The bulls slowly sauntered off the trail and we went by. Little did we know we would have a joiner for the rest of the trip. Kara as it would turn out was good company and quite the hiker.

As we made our way up to the top it got colder and colder. Above 7000 feet there is still light snow scattered on the ground. This made the final steep part a little tricky. I went down on my face once but no injuries. Up top we were in the middle of a cold cloud and didn't stick around long. The great views I had seen before were a white blur.

Back down the slippery slope we went and before long were back at the car. I always enjoy hiking with The Eagle and Joe. This was my first actual hike with Ray which was also nice. As for Kara hopefully we will cross paths again. I think Bruce sold her on the benefits of joining HAZ. :D
