No big entry for this trip up Mailbox Peak. Got up late saw that it was a nice day and decided I shouldn’t waste it. I got to the trail head around 1pm, top at ~3:45pm for a little meal and rest. Found out that an Ice-ax with a soft jacket hung over it makes for a pretty nice back rest/ chair when sitting on hard pack snow. On the way down the sun had been beating down on the snow covered trees long enough that if felt like I was walking in a slushy machine with slush raining down and a few inches on the ground. Got back to the car around 6pm plenty of day light left, the time change a few weeks ago is nice to have the evening hours available.
