Osceola 2/21/09-Peak Bagging Report

Matt and I needed the 2 Osceola peaks for our winter list, and Josh still needed them for his 48 List.  We made the hike in just a little over 6 hours.  Last time I did these peaks it was from the Tripolli Rd side,
this time we did them from the Kanc, so I was able to cover a little new trail as well.  This was purely a winter hiking trip, but we carried snow shoes, cramps and axes.  The hike from this side is fairly steep, and the snow was really soft and fresh so it was real nice to have the gear vin spots.
Heres a few Photos I took.

I liked the way this pick of Matt and Josh came out:

We only ran into two other hikers, and that was when we were between the two peaks, and we ran into two very tight lipped telemark skiers skinning up.  I figured out where there stash was and would like to try it sometime.
