Although the weather was a little on the colder side we had such a great experience! Heidi was out tour guide and was the perfect personality for everyone in the group. Very knowledgeable and safe throughout.
Worth a visit, could do it on your own.

It was very cool to see the frozen waterfalls and river we usually see in the summer. Too many people climbing and hiking the day we went. Was a much longer process then expected
