The parking lot for Mt. Dickerman just off the Mountain Loop Highway. Forest park pass required, toilets available. Some early folks already on the way up.

Thomas and Martina getting ready.

   
An early view across the valley.
   
Across the valley you get good views of Big 4, Vesper and Sperry and others. This is the end of Big 4. A very impressive mountain.
   
We hit snow at about 3700 feet and after slipping and sliding over a fair amount of ice on the trail we were suddenly in deep snow.
   
Looking through the trees again.
   
Vesper and Sperry.
   
Our friend Dennis on the trail.
   
Breaking out onto the upper slopes we put on snow shoes. The boot track was ok to go without snowshoes but the shoes made for better traction and the ability to go in any direction.
   
Looking toward 3 Fingers.

Looking south toward Vesper, Sperry, Morning Glory and many others.
