For sure Douggie, was my bucket list thing too and now I want to head back this weekend to check on things again, maybe pack snow shoes and try for Tunnel Falls. Need to check upcoming forecasts...

Great pictures. The first picture will keep me from ever attempting it under such risky conditions. Back in February 1988 a friend and I followed the trail through knee-deep snow to High Bridge (first footprints) but we did not have the ice to contend with, just overnight snow. Great pictures, but a more acceptable level of risk. Exposure, gravity and balance just aren't my allies.

Thanks, Don! Can't thank you enough for your reports and videos, which I used extensively to plan the overnight. :)
