Change to Yellow Hill:

Due to snow, we are changing our location to Yellow Hill/Elbow Peak.  However, Elbow Peak is further so we will just be heading to Yellow Hill.

You can see it on Green Trails map 209 for Mount Stuart.  This is also the best map for driving to the trailhead.

Great view on a clear day, so keep your fingers crossed.
