David all ready for the run up to Santa Fe Baldy.
The Winsor Trail between parking area and Raven's ridge was really packed, but made for good running. It was a little more dicy in place on the return.
About to get going. David and Tom joined me in the last minute Bady run.
Made quick time up to Raven's Ridge.
Tom coming along
I am super excited to enter the Wilderness area.
The morning started off cold (~17F), but quickly got nice out.
First view of Baldy from the Winsor Trail
Some skiied down this slope
Approaching the Winsor - Skiline Trail Junction
Still a lot of snow up here
The snow was packed nicely the entire way. Towards the saddle it became a little less packed.
At the junction, next up to the saddle.
Less people have been up here, but the snow was able to support our weight.
David busting a move uphill
On the ridge heading to Badly. It got windy and cold quickly.
Looking back towards the ski area.
