Hiking the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness

Trail head sits at 5900 feet. The drive up to trail head is a trip, with some major drop offs on the single car road.
I made it to about 7500 feet within 45 minutes, but then the snow began to cover the trail. The trail is very easy to follow and in great shape. I continued through the heavy snow for another 30 minutes, but soon realized without snow shoes I would not be able to summit. I turned around and met another hiker who was more prepared having snowshoes on his pack. I wished he would of had a second pair so I could of continued forward. I will be back in a few weeks and post more about the hike to the top. I am putting snowshoes on my Christmas list.
