    Grizzly Lake

    Grizzly Lake is now open. OrangeXJ, Guammy, and ourselves snowbashed our way to the top. There were 3 to 4' drifts. There is also alot of downed trees caused by some major wind. They were broke of at the trunks of the trees. There was one that blocked the trail that was around 2' in diameter and was off the ground about a foot, that we just eventually had to wheel over it. It is gorgeous as always. I will try to get some pictures posted later on. I do not have the capabilities but Guammy does.

    Thanks Guammy for posting those pictures. I can't believe how hard that snow was. I was standing on top of it and not sinking in

    OK I got confused I only found 2 trailheads off the main road the second one went to the mine and Pomeroy lake. What is the first one once you start up the road? Iron Chest or Grizzley lake? And were is the other trailhead?

    As soon as you start up Hancock pass the first road to your left that looks like a private drive is Grizzy. The second that looks like a little parking area is Iron Chest. Then about 2 miles down is the turn off to a Mine and Pomeroy Lake, which the last mile is still closed due to snow.

    Don't be a jerk. You are far from perfect. Don't ruin a good post.
