a beautiful loop around yale. been wanting to try this route for a while. with snow in the forecast i decided to squeeze it in on a whim this morning.
started with heavy legs but got into a good rhythm on the climb up north cottonwood creek. insane winds on browns pass slowed me down quite a bit and i actually struggled to find the trail up there as i could barely see. other than that - everything went smoothly. will take another crack at this with fresh legs! highly recommend this one.
