We drove through deteriorating road conditions in the middle of the snow storm to reach Sam A. Baker state park Friday afternoon.  We then hiked up to shelter 1 and slept there for the night.  Day 2 we woke up and hiked to shelter 3 where we left our heavy gear and then headed to the summit of Mudlick mountain.  After some time ontop we trailblazed straight down the west side of the mountain rather than following any trail.  We then followed the valley floor back north and hiked back up to shelter 3 for the night where our gear was.  Day 3 we woke up and hiked back down to the waiting Jeep.
