Probably not Bruce. But we do need someone to go to the BRD meeting to get the latest info on the reroute. I don't think Kevin or I can go, not sure about Marco. Can anyone else make it this month?

Here's a video. I'll get the others posted as I get them uploaded to the ftp site:

In this one Wild Rice wanted a piece of that tree up above and Uncle Ben had to put an end to that behavior quickly!

Rollins Pass looks good! There was some small fallen rocks early on on the trail that will get worked to the edge as traffic increases. The one issue that BRD will have to address is a tree that is leaning over the road. It will fall! BRD would rather users only remove trees obscuring the road so we complied and left it. Now that Rollins is open JC will continue to get worked but it will be a least 2+ weeks till snow has receded on the narrow road leading to the creek crossing enough to break with a vehicle. At this time there is no road edge for quite a distance.

I'm not sure if Marco is back in town Thursday but I'll plan on attending the meeting.

The leaning tree looks like it wants a tug to bring it down

Some older snow pix on Rollins Pass...




Note... that is the TOP of the 200 ton 2-6-6-2 Mallet locomotive just below the snow... with the mighty steam powered snowplow pushed in front of it, clearing the path.

Glad to see you're getting around to scanning in some photos from your childhood, Bill. I assume you're the strapping young lad in the second one.

Nope, I'm the wealthy old fart. I'm living in reverse. Like Merlin.

thanks for being able to attend Bruce. I will be heading back, but not back yet so I won't be able to make it again.

I am also surprised by the amount of snow on the trail. From the looks of the pics it looks like a great trip up there
