We set out for Maxwell Butte Shelter on an unusually warm winter day. It had not snowed for a while, so the snow was packed down hard and some hikers opted to take off their snow shoes and hike all or some of the way in their hiking boots, which worked just fine. We took the most direct route, switch backing our way up to the shelter. The morning had been a mix of sun and clouds, but as we made our way to the shelter the sun prevailed and we were treated to lovely views of Three Fingered Jack and the Three Sisters Mountains. We took a leisurely lunch, enjoying basking in warm sunshine while taking in the views of the Cascades. We took a slightly longer route down, looping back to the trailhead.
