Just got back down the hill and I want to thank Mike, Jay and Doug for running JC with Michele and I today....I had a blast.

Awesome run today. Thanks to Steve and Michele for leading the way and thanks to Mike for the excellent spot . It was great to have Doug out as well and hopefully the wife didn't notice the new mods to the truck.

Nope.....you hit snow on the trail by a camp area high on the trail. You can travel through the camp site site, where there is a trail, and rejoin the main trail. The trail is blocked again by snow at the top where RS installed the post and cable.....still lot's of snow at the top!!!!

Technical difficulties this morning with my camera.......patience.

I had a great time, thanks to Steve for setting this up ... nice job by Doug and Jay to get out unscathed

Ok ..give me break on this ...first try with this flash drive video camera and software. (yes ..I had to add the shots of the belly cam and rear view going up/down the creek )




UB - No way to get out the top at this point. There is a partially busted drift in the trees between the two stretches of post and cable and the big drift covering the last climb hasn't even been touched.

I considered trying to winch up but no time and there is still a couple stretches of snow on the top before you get back out to the main Moffat road.
There are more than a couple single tracks going through the trees to bypass that last climb I saw the same thing last year. We need to put up more cable or lay some deadfalls in that area.

Mike- I'm jealous of your camera.

Tim, I can tell you that unless someone breaks the drift it will not be passable next week! I might get up there sometime this week and finish breaking the rest of the trail. Tuesday wheeling?
