Trip Report

     "Early start" up the Brothers from the Garden. Nice views, clear day. Easy going, until we got to the last .3mi to the summit of Big Slide which was very steep. We made it to the summit, enjoyed some hot cocoa and cliff bars, and started the hike down. We waited to bring out the sleds til after we got down the steep section [which apparently is a ladder in the summertime] - when we did bring out the sleds, it was great since we went straight down to the JBL and it kinda traverses across the mountain rather than straight down. We made it out before dark, pretty uneventful. Just very nice views.

The Good and The Bad

The Good:

*Views from the Brothers
*Hot cocoa on the summit

The Bad:

*Not being able to sled for very long
*Coming down to the junction from the summit

The Drive

Woke up early in the morning and on the road by 6:30 - uneventful both ways. There was free parking at the Garden which made us happy though!
