Trip Report:
- Wednesday was a great day to venture above treeline so Alton and I headed to the Southern Presidential Range.  The plan was to hike Eisenhower and Pierce, then head over to Jackson.  Unfortunately Alton's snowshoes were giving her major issues but we were able to make the most of it and hike Eisenhower and Pierce.
- Views were some of the best I have ever seen and there was no wind.  It would have made for a great Presidential Traverse day!
- Wednesday night a ferocious snow storm came barrelling through the mountains and dumped a foot plus of powder in the higher elevations so we decided to hook up with Kelsey and Brian.  They have never been in snowshoes before so it was a perfect chance for them to get used to them so we took them to the picturesque Flume Gorge and the Pool followed by a short hike to Lower Georgiana Falls.
- It was snowing all throughout both of our walks through the deep powder.  The Flume Gorge and Pool are a must see in the winter, wicked pretty!
