9 miles of CDT Then bushwacked down out of the storms and snow ... To a Hwy. Long day
9 miles of suck. Abort to lower elevation. Post holed with snow shoes. Used USGS maps to get to hwy. Bushwacked to a lower trail - ran into a dirt biker. Found antlers. Bones mostly picked clean. Road walk. Store closed. Their sign lied about their hours. Slept next to some cows.
