Exploratory trip to three peaks.  We hope to get all three peaks, but we'll be open to completing what we can considering the snow conditions, trail conditions, and strength of the group.  From Mowich, we'll travel up to Knapsack Pass, then down to Fay Peak first.  We'll continue on to Mt. Pleasant, and Hessong Rock, and come back on the Spray Park trail.

 Pace will be moderate... fast enough to keep the heart pumping, slow enough where we can converse... usually this is around 1,000 ft/hr.  Hourly break for snacks and quick breaks for photos are definitely okay.
