November 16, 2011 – Hike up Placer Valley

A nice day to take a hike…

Well its another beautiful day in the mountains and we have decided to take our buddy Dave and Phurba out for a hike up Placer Valley.

The trail is snow packed and pretty icy in spots so we are wearing our crampons again.  (see October 19 for information about crampons).

The problem with early season snow conditions, there are areas that you need the crampons and others where its just rocks.  Great conditions for twisting ankles…  especially bad ones.  Oh well…  the price you pay for fun, right?
