hiking 19:57  0.66 km (30:14 / km) +75m 19:18 / km
After downhill skiing didn't work out (way too many people in the overflow parking where the attendant said he had never seen people have to park in the six years that he has worked there) so I put my skis back in the car and looked for another thing to do. After driving around a bit, I ran across a spot with a pull off and several cars parked with a rustic trail heading off (and up!). I started to climb with just my boots as it would have been too narrow for snowshoes, but should have grabbed my poles and yaxtrax. The steepness got me spooked and I turned around pretty much just before the area where they were ice-climbing. I should have gone up the rest to have watched. Next time.
