Florence Peak (winter)

Included Sweet Peak on ascent for a bit of a cross country/navigation problem (standard route on descent). Total trip was 4000' over 8 miles. Snow level started at ~3000(est) and gradually rose throughout the day, but we got above it at ~4000 for a bit drier/colder conditions up to the summit of Florence. Micro-spikes were useful on portions of trail, switched to snowshoes at ~5000' (just past Pt 5042). Backup destination for original trip to Icicle Ridge (major winter storm made getting to/from Leavenworth problematical). Snow level forecast rising to 7000-9000' incentivized us to get down early. Trip was 7:30am to 3pm.
