Snowfields to cross - could be difficult
Drove out to Baker for a quick night hike up to Artist Point. The road from the lower parking lot was closed but completely clear and plowed all the way to the Artist Point parking lot. From there, everything is still snow covered but navigating isn't too hard when you know the general direction you are going. Snow was pretty icy for the most part but a small amount of post-holing took place. Arrived in the Artist Point area around 1:00am to a gorgeous, clear night with very little moon pollution and virtually no clouds.


Great photos!

Love the photos, thanks for sharing! Interesting that the road was already entirely clear. I suppose that means it will be opened soon!
