Great day, poor decisions.

Did not listen to my gut and left snowshoes in the car. Poor choice as I was postholing up to my knees (more on slopes) once in the basin just above Blue Lakes. Also saw signs of what looked like wet slides and wind loaded snow above the route, but was hard to tell since I turned around. Evaluate and be cautious.

Ice Axe came out above Blue Lakes. But didn't use traction all day. Brought crampons as well and I'd say they'd be needed later... just wish I had snowshoes.
