Started hike just after 9am started with spikes and switched to snowshoes about 1/4 mile in. Broke trail for about 4/5 of high canon all the way to the kinsman ridge. Descended down kinsman ridge and lonesome lake. Was very steep and slid down a lot of the steep part. May need to get poles. Looped around lonesome lake and sat with a nice group of hikers for 10 minutes then proceeded back to the trail head. Was snowing lightly most of the time. Nice hike.
