Description

This trip ended up being a snowshoe hike to The Gash below Andrews Glacier, Otis Peak, and the Sharkstooth in Rocky Mountain National Park.  The forecast wasn't good and snow conditions were worse.  Fortunately I was able to convince everyone to bring snowshoes along or we would have likely turned around before we even reached The Loch.  It ended up being a nice hike for some exercise and scenery.
