Hey Folks! This is rather last minute but I was thinking about doing a little hike tomorrow and thought Elk Mountain and Mount Thurston might be good to try. Since the high point is 1630m there may not be too much snow (though still expect some hiking on snow). This route is pages 132 and 133 of the 103 Hikes Book 6th Edition. This is a hike, not a scramble. Round trip 16.5 km, elevation gain 1030m - book says to allow 7 hours but I'd like to hike it faster than that. If I haven't hiked with you before, please send me an email outlining your experience, including mountains you've climbed (recently and in the past). Thanks!
