Default Zoa-Falls Lake Loop via ridge to Zupkios, Februuary 11 2018

Ingrid and I have both been recovering from flu/coughs, so we weren't sure what we could accomplish today. Once we got to the summit of Zoa though, our spirits were buoyed and we decide to complete the whole loop which includes continuing along the Zoa ridge towards Zupkios Peak and then drops down to Falls Lake. The descent from the ridge to Falls Lake was pretty sketchy as there was thin powder over an icy crust. This led to some challenging situations...

In the center you can see the ridge we will follow and then drop down from to make our way along the creek to Falls Lake

Some steepness to deal with as we come down off the ridge
