Video from the trip lots of fun in the snow. It defiantly made a mild trail more interesting!
Man what a great trip it was yesterday!
Camp was busy but still a great place to be on the river.
We meet up with Michael B at the old ranger station and headed up to the trail head around 10:30.
not 5 mins into the access road we came across a Nissan with a flat tire, Phil was nice enough to offer up some plug for the puncture, we plugged the 2 holes and aired him up so he could get out.
Then we found another rig further up the road with a slashed side wall from a rock. ( Phil and I were happy to have certificates for our tires and full size spares at this point )
we made it to the trail head and aired tires down to 10psi, there was a foot deep snow bank at the trail head so we new we were in fro fun higher up.
we got into the trail and found a built LJ and Toyota that had turned around from the snow, they had said a group of samurai's were up the day before and could not make it up.
with that information we prepared to be turned around but head up the trail to see for our selves.
we had no major problems the whole trail, Michael B got some new experience snow driving and quickly learned what his new FJ would do, Phil broke trail and only needed one minor tug back on the snow berm the Sammys could not get over. I was having a blast, got to try out my Maxtrax where we stopped for lunch and launched myself into a deep snow bank lower down at the end of the day.
once we ran the lower part of the trail we followed the FS road higher up as the trail was too off camber for the snow conditions the rest of the way to the lake. we moved a few trees and worked our way as high as we could.
over all a great trip, Happy Memorial day every one and thanks to those who serve to make this great nation what it is.
