OK, we'll start at the north end of Mueller, where the snow-clearing ends.
Our trailhead had warm, flushable bathrooms. :)
For openers, heading north along the snow-covered road ...
... or going deep on the side of the road.
Some guys think poles are for wimps!
Staying on top of the snow takes effort, even with snowshoes.
Nice to let the strongest break trail!
OK - time to catch our breathes on our Grouse Mtn perch.
Pikes Peak massif to the SE.
Hard to imagine a more perfect weather day.
From this angle the summit is barely visible atop left hump.
Suzi spotting something?
Hunter Randy confirms: it's elk poop at Sam's feet.
Catching some rays.
Stumbling upon a snowshoe graveyard?
Laying low - on the elk hunt.
Gee, the descent seems a lot easier!
We only saw a few skiers.
Victory - and right on schedule - still Saturday!
It was a fun time for all. ... Thx for joining our little adventure.
Love & NTW, Bill
