2020-12-20 | Entrance Ridges (Muley and Carry Ridges) | 1584 max |1393 TH | 9.4km | 372 TA | w/ Shannon, Lana*, Jason*, Loki*

Improvised a bit from the ‘route’ by using the cow/horse trail in the draw between the two ridges. Sidetripped to a high point on Muley before dropping to find a alternate path up to Carry. A boggy spot soaked Lana’s boot, so they returned while Shannon and I ascended Carry Ridge via the normal connecting route. Of the two, Carry has the views. Lunch in a sheltered spot before returning. This is about as close as it gets for front-country hiking. Snow was light and microspikes stayed in the bag.
