Monte Cristo Ghost Town

We were looking for a hike that avoided the snow up the in mountains, so in that sense, this was a failure. There was a good 6 inches of snow at the trailhead up to about a foot at the town site, but the hike was mostly flat and we were able to walk in the footsteps of the few people who went up ahead of us. It was a beautiful day, a pleasant drive, and well worth the trek.

  1. Darn it! Just before you posted this, I earmarked that hike and hoped I might be able to get it in during winter. Well, phooey on that!

    1. I think it would be a good snowshoe as long as the road stays passable.
