Start the day with a re-jig looking for ‘warmer’ temps. -12 or so start and not much wind (for this area, wind is the norm) so pretty lucky choice I guess. Not much snow lately so spikes on the rock hard packed snowshoe/ski trails. Loop from the Beaver Creek day-use up and over Mount Albert (highest point in the park) and traverse to Mount Baldy before completing the clockwise loop through some of the maze of lower trails. Most junctions well signed. Some of the old homestead buildings are still there in the trees. Day use was busy with families and other noise – cheers to early starts. A stop at the Oldman Monolith where hwy 22 goes over the Oldman completed the days outing.
