Craig (Beave), Randy, and I headed up to Big Snow Mtn last Sunday.  As noted in the "Dudes! The MFK Road is thrashed!" thread, we encountered a large blowdown blocking the road a little over a mile from the Hardscrabble Lakes trail, and two large washouts at the [former] trailhead.  It appears nature is reclaiming the road faster than the FS alternative "E" moon.gif.  We postholed a bit along the way to Lower Hardscrabble Lake but didn't end up needing snowshoes.  However, it was a good thing we brought our crampons & ice axes as the final traverse to the summit on steep icy slopes brought out the butterflies knowing one false step and you're a goner all the way to Big Snow Lake eek.gif.  We had beautiful sunny weather most of the way up but upon reaching the summit we were swarmed by clouds like a boy scout troop to a quiet campsite.  Not the greatest day for picture taking but fortunately we had taken a few shots along the way, and the excellent company made more than made up for it.  Hope you enjoy the pictures!
