    Hi Burce! Looking forward to those photos! If they are online you can just copy and paste them here. I think you forgot the link though and I see no photos.

Here's a photo as she hikes over the crest to the viewpoint of Fitz Roy, which did not make an appearance for over 30 minutes then it gradually got better (2nd photo) and finally show totally when we were at the bottom. Lots more photos coming and a video showing the awesome winds this area is so reknowed for. bruce from bryce

The snow was coming down the whole time and it was difficult to keep the camera dry.Yes, I put on Katoolahs right at the parking area at the Grotto. They clogged up quite a lot until I got to Scout Lookout where the wind had crusted the snow a bit and it was colder and the snow was drier. They worked really well. I didn't slip except for one time when I was on the steeper slickrock near the summit and the snow slid and I hit rock.I would estimate 4 inches of snow at the grotto, 8'-10' at refrig. mouth, 10-12' at Scout Lookout and maybe 12-18' up top of Angels?
