My Hike:

11/11/2015 Our winter storm brought a winter wonderland last night, what a treat today. Trail was snow covered by 3500 ft, in some places I sunk to me knees. I got a late start, there were 3 folks ahead of me so postholing had already started, but I had the lake to myself while I was there. A crowd of folks came in behind me, so the snow was tampered down on the way back to my car. Even on a day like this, I saw folks in their red flannel pajamas and drenched Keds. Don’t forget to check the NOAA website before you go!
