Aspen Tree, Galena Creek












Snowshoe trek with M. up the Galena Creek drainage from Nevada Highway 431 to the waterfall along the Mt. Rose trail–well, to the snow-covered slope where the waterfall would be. A nice warm day, lots of snow still, slushy by afternoon. Slow going with the soft snow. Don’t forget the sunscreen next time!!
