Started at Beaver Reservoir to save a few miles compared to the Peaceful Valley TH. It's a gravel road after Peak to Peak Highway but it's passable for 2WD passenger cars. It's still a fairly long approach to the Coney Flats TH at the wilderness boundary. I saw a handful of cross country skiers up until Coney Flats but they disappeared past this.
Originally I was planning on heading up to Buchanan Pass but I was running out of daylight so I headed into the valley between Coney Island and Sawtooth Mt. This area was also conveniently free of snow above about 11,000 feet.

I like sawtooth mountain. Easy to recognize. Like a miniature half dome from YNP. I think my favorite picture is the sculpted snow crust in front of the distant trees and what looks like the third view of sawtooth mountain.
