My partner Ingrid, and I wanted to go out for a rain-free hike this Sunday (Oct.18); and we had to drive nearly 2 hours to reach the trail head from home. Although hike was largely a dry one, we did experience some face-stinging ice pellets near the summit. Freezing level forecast was 2100 meters for the day which proved accurate, at 2268 meters the little precip was frozen together with strong winds; and nearly storm force along one of the corners of the mountain on our way back. After reflecting on this, next time may just do a rainy-day hike near home.

A hike no matter the conditons is a welcome reprieve from a week in a stuffy office.

1 km up from lake, snow depth increased, so put on microspikes to steady from slipping on slush.

Freshly dug up earth by some animal; hours old. Looks like the hunter was after the underground moles or gophers ?

Nice one Karl. I have been wanting to get up there for a while but never got around to it this summer. Will have to try next year.
I think I was doing extra time in the stuffy office on that day.
Cheers
