Returned to Toad Mountain today with the goal of avoiding further sunburn. It was a hot hike in the full sun and we moved slowly along the ridge, packing snow into our hats.

The access road, always rough enough to require 4WD HC, has a new hole that breaks into a mine shaft. The hole is on the final switchback before parking, just above the tailing piles. The hole has been well-marked with flagging tape, but we stopped the car early instead of attempting to drive around and over it.
