Trip Report: Snow Wheeling 2017/2018

Postby christensent » Sun Oct 08, 2017 5:18 pm

A new season, a new thread! This worked out well last year, so just subscribe to this thread for the year.

Drove up and down Van Epps Pass and then up to Gallaher Head Lake and on to the top of Hawkins Mountain 4WD trail on Saturday. Got up driving on mostly dirt.

Three hours later 6+ inches of snow had fallen (probably the heaviest snow I've ever personally experienced). Winds had picked up to sustained 30-40MPH and continued all night, along with lots more snow.

Hiked up Hawkins Mountain in the morning before leaving. Amazing amounts of snow had fallen, many feet deep up on the mountain in places.

The hardest part of leaving was just finding the road!
