a trip to the meadow at the base of Big 4.
what an incredible trip up to Big 4. we were surprised to find that the Mountain Loop Highway was still open to Barlow Pass – it’s usually closed by late November/early December. we only went as far as Big 4, and the last mile getting there, the road was snow-packed and turning into a slushy/icy mess.
Big 4 was gorgeous. there was about 4 inches of snow on the ground at the base, and you could see it snowing up on the mountain. the whole basin was full of snow which reflected the sun peeking through intermittent clouds.
