Maxwell Butte Shelter
February 22-23, 2003
Several days of snow the previous week made this low elevation
ski tour a success (3,700–4,280).
Five people hoisted packs and skied into the Maxwell Butte Shelter
via the shortest trail (#8,9,10,12) some 2.2 miles on thin snow.
A pleasant night was spent at the shelter along with 6 others.
We took the longer Mt. View Loop trail on our return trip (6.6 mi.).
The trail was poorly marked and overgrown and not recommended
(the last mile from 24->9) without good conditions and a sense of adventure.
Trip participants were Andrea Coffman, Gary Griffin, Stephanie Midkiff,
Larry Schulze and Marsha Barr.
