Default 10/22-23 Wendy Thompson Hut postholing

We did Wendy Thompson Hut 10/22-23, a lots snow there, without snowshoes it made an easy overnight trip quick tough, post holing all the way from Rohr lake junction, you do want your snowshoes or ski if you go there. Anyway, we had great time there and it's our pleasure to meet 4 super friendly skiers there. Here are some our pics to share:

Thanks so much for the TR. We're heading up that way to Rohr and was looking for some snow info. Did you park near the highway or were you able to make up the road to the trailhead?

what was the dish you were cooking? looks excellent!

We also brought home-made dishes for potlucks, e.g.

homemade coho and smelt jerky(we fished),home-made beef jerky; beef cold rice noodle salad, spicy sliced hard tofu salad,roasted chicken wings,home grown Chinese Celery fried with sliced tofu with slice meat,Sliced lotus root salad,etc.

Desert: home-made read bean paste cake, home-made Macaroon, home-made green cake with wild transitional Chinese herbs

Great report and great pics, looks like a super fun time! I realize it's very conditions-dependent, but approximately how long is a reasonable time for a return trip from the highway to the hut and back on snowshoes? Around 6-7 hours maybe? Planning on doing it later this year maybe. Thanks.

6 -7 hours should be plenty, there are some slide areas that can be active, Please be able to evaluate safe travel.
