Was there a full moon to show you the way? Way to grind it out!

Yes...a full moon plus a Black Diamond Storm Headlamp! It was a decent ride except I was in clip-type shoes and my feet got cold.
Also I had an explosion rear flat on the way down, luckily at a low speed. There is a lot of debris on the road. The tire was 1 day new and its already in the trash. A co-worker suggested maybe there are metal filings on the road from all the recent grinding snow removal operations.

Snow conditions.

Was there enough light to see Evans's northeast face or perhaps the snow depth on it?

CreekRunner -sorry I was entirely focused on bike riding, the condition of the road, and listening/watching for any vehicles coming up or down. -mv
