New Year Day snowshoe along Ghost Ridge

Snowshoe up and along Ghost Ridge

New Year Day and what has become a tradition for me, I went for a snowshoe. This time up to Ghost Ridge but for some reason it dawned on me a ridge means more then just a summit. So after making it to the traditional summit I strolled off into the unknown and started down the ridge. OK, I actually had studied my map and was running a bearing I had set from the summit. The snow was still soft and breaking trail was not easy but I did make it to the second summit viewpoint. I could see the end of the ridge and last viewpoint, which looked like a good one, from the second summit but I did not have the legs to make it to it and make it back today. So hopefully I will be back next weekend. After a cold start the weather turn out better then I had expected.
