I had an appointment in Boise, so arranged to go for a hike with Michael. Gorgeous day to be out, and his company always makes for a great day. Frozen soil in the morning, too.

There's the summit off in the distance. Trailhead

We took the go-around for this false summit, which put us on bulletproof snow too steep for unclad hiking boots. Ruby, on the other hand, has built-in crampons. Trailhead

Ruby's first time up, but still couldn't get her to hold still for the photo. Meanwhile, she started barking at a mystery that turned out to be two guys coming up for their first time, from the west. She's a good watch dog.

Note: Trail was getting a little soft as we descended around noon.
