Pretty crazy how little water there is till that snow melts......

OK, so here it goes............ I say 3 WEEKS MIN till we can get up there...I've never seen that much snow on this road before. We were only a mile away from the lake and we snowshoed almost the entire way in....We followed the road the entire way so ALL of these pics are stuff that has to be bashed or melt....enjoy.:beer:

This is the intersection of roads just before you drop into the last valley........I think we walked 300-400 yards on snow that was 3ft-10ft here..

At first we thought the snow would stay about this deep.........

The steep section is covered in hard, windblown offcamber snow...

The last 1/4 mile or so is strewn with 6ft-8ft drifts...

Had to get a pic for perspective........I've snowshoed alot..this is one of the largest/deepest single drifts I've come across @ this altitude........we think this Yeti Drift was about 30ft deep.....

I'm not even going to TRY to get to the lake till July. Oh and let's try to let those ASSHAT QUADS know that just because they can get around some of the drifts..they shouldn't.... 9mm's work well for this task. ;) :rolleyes:

And of course after a good hike........making sure the 'U' never leaves my SUV.:beer:
