Yesterday, I went on a club hike led by Dave Callais into the Eagles Nest Wilderness. It was my first hike into the high country this year, and I enjoyed it greatly. We climbed to a high basin and then worked our way down, partly off-trail, around mounds of snow. The climb down switch backed down the side of a steep valley with great views of the mountains. With the melting snow, there was a great deal of wet ground.
