Rattlesnake Cliffs

by Rob Friesel

In lieu of a weekend wrap-up:

Rattlesnake Point snowshoe #549

Rattlesnake Cliffs. The write-up in the hiking guide didn’t make it sound so tough. But I think they assume you’re doing the climb in the summer. With an elevation of around 1,100 it doesn’t sound so impressive. But I forgot how much extra resistance the snow can add. Even with the snowshoes.1 It was totally worth it though. Great views, perfect weather for a winter snowshoe hike. Just great. Some other highlights:

See the whole set as a slideshow on Flickr. Don’t miss the panoramic I took at the top. And also the sunset shots from Overlook Park.2
