did you go up there by yourself?
I don't know if you're in any of the local clubs, but you need to post up somewhere and let someone know where you're going and ask if anyone can join you. Someone usually can. if you decide to go by yourself, more power to you, but someone needs to know in case you roll your Jeep. You can't rely on us here, since I often forget to check this section, and don't own a winch anyway.
and really....stay away from the mountains this time of year. they can be nasty and it's just not worth it just to see some snow. Potato can get more snow than you think and cover up the rocks.
I stay in the lower elevations till March or April.
