We were fortunate to get another sunny Saturday, so Laurie and I made the most of it and tagged two summits: Mount Si and its neighbor, Teneriffe.
The traverse from Si to Teneriffe was new to me. We broke trail through the undisturbed snow, following old logging roads, until we joined the main route to Teneriffe. At this point, we were able to follow the tracks of others, and we eventually passed a group of snowshoers. The summit of Teneriffe was a sharp ridge of snow. The wind was blasting on one side, but calm on the other. Fortunately, we were on the calm side, but we had to be careful not to loose our footing and tumble back down into the trees (been there, done that).
We slogged back the way we came, taking a break to eat Laurie’s pumpkin muffins. The muffin power helped us back over to Mount Si. The views were great, and the snow was beautiful in the trees. But it’s spring now, so the snow can hurry up and melt. A nice, warm, dry trail would be a welcome change of pace.
