We jumped off the highway and headed down a very dry county road to the trail head. When we arrived, we were greated by a natural winter gate keeper.
Once we were past the creek crossing, the snow got deeper and a lot thicker. We were able to keep pressing through, but at a snails pace. We finally called it quits 2.1 miles in.
With the way things looked, Patrol 14 hopes to have the trail open by the end of May.
