Scott, on his 48th birthday, and Fred did Cannon Mtn., up via Hi-Cannon and Kinsman Ridge Trails, then down to Lonesome Lake. The weather was as predicted: cool and stupendously clear. We used snow shoes up and snowshoes and butt slides down to Lonesome Lake. The steepest section of Kinsman Ridge Trail below Cannon was quick; I was not on my feet. After the sliding the trail got managable with snowshoes. Then, after Lonesome Lake junction, we used microspikes back to car.
