We will start snowshoeing at the Glacier Gorge trail heading toward Mills Lake.  Depending upon conditions we may take the winter or summer trail to Mills Lake, we will decide on trail.  We will evaluate conditions at Mills Lake and unless conditions prevent us from continuing, we will press on to Black Lake.   

For this trip, trekking poles with snow baskets are highly recommended.  With wind conditions being highly variable, goggles and face protection are needed.  The 10-essentials are also required.
