I did a conditioning hike with Lori and Becky of the Wyeth Trail. I was in need of doing a good work out to keep from turning into the Pillsbury Dough Boy so I went at my pace on this hike. I also wanted to check on snow level and the snow condition. So I went ahead and left Lori and Becky to go at their own pace. Once I hit enough snow to lose the trail I turned around and met up with Lori and Becky on the way back. We descended together back to the car. I made it up to 4200 ft elevation before turning around. So I was able to get about 9 miles and 4000 ft elevation gain in.
