June 28, Esmerelda Basin

Headed out to the Teanaway to do a circumnavigation of Esmerelda Peak.  Unfortunately as we dropped over the North side of our route we realized that the route was still covered in too much snow.  Still we made it to the top Esmerelda Basin and enjoyed the out and back trail ride.

We tried dropping off the backside,  but ended up turning around
due to the large amount of snow remaining down in the shaded areas.

Francine heads back down on the Esmerelda basin trail.
