Mt. Morgan Hike – Microspikes in the Snow

108 Words. Plan about 0 minute(s) to read this.

I did this hike as an exploration of what this whole winter hiking thing was about.  Cold weather is one thing.  A snow covered trail is another.  I must say I love winter hiking completely.  With the proper clothes to keep you warm and dry, plus decent traction to keep you moving, the experience is a pure one.

I started for real winter hiking by ascending little Mt. Morgan, since it’s very manageable, and I’m very familiar with the trail.  I wore microspikes and ascended easily.  Descent was actually fun.  I could sort of ski/slide my way down on the steep sections with my boots and microspikes.
