    Cool, thanks Fred. I have to admit I was starting to hunt for some slip-on crampons with all the snow talk. Not a big ticket item down here! I fly into Durango

      Hey Hardrockers,



      I arrived in Silverton yesterday afternoon. After reading messages on

      this list and hearing from the locals about very recent snowfall, I was

      a little nervous about what I'd find when I hit the hills.



      Here's what I experienced on Kendall Mountain this morning: the trail is

      almost clear of snow and ice already. The first snowdrift was at about

      12,400, and it's all melting away very fast. Much of the snow on the

      mountains is rather brown with dirt on it, which increases the rate of

      melt. Also the current forecast shows a pretty warm week shaping up,

      which is likewise good news.



      Admittedly, Kendall is pretty exposed. Virginius and Grant-Swamp may

      not be ready for prime time for a little bit yet...



      It's good to be back! And the coffee and ambiance at Steam & Steel is

      every bit as good as I remembered. :-)



      Seeya soon,



      - Fred
