I crossed the creek with water 3/4's of the way up my wheels and strong current slipping me sideways in a couple places! The trail was a kick in the pants with perfect snow drifts! The noise of rushing water when in the creek in the submerged road sections is deafining! The first real challenge was the same as last year and that is the furthest west creek bank as you finnally climb out the last time. The drift was only 3-4' deep but it is about 12' long and climbing out the steep back kills any chance at momentum. That took me about 6 trys till the front tires finally grabbed dirt and pulled me through. I might add my front winch and grill were packed with snow.
I had a blast and the snow was all mini drifts with a few off camber bank drifts to keep my attention. I finally got up to "Treeroots Birfield shadetree garage" (about a 1/4 to 1/3 mile past the cabin ruins) and stopped I figured I would leave the primo drifts ahead for the next trip!
