We've had a really low snow year this winter. New Hammock Forum member Kodepop mentioned that he went backpacking up in the same area I go to last month. But usually that road is completely snowed in. Yesterday, I decided to go check out the snow levels and then pick a hike to go on depending on the snow levels.
I ended up going on the Lake Spaulding trail and I had a couple little adventures. But it was an awesome day.
