^^When was that exactly crawlerman?

I went through night of 12/19. Road up to Stumpy was mostly pavement. Then packed down snow covered a full block before Stumpy turn in and we aired down thinking remainder was like that. Nope, hit the bridge and bare road, with scattered patches all the way past Uncle Tom's. In and out of 4wd.

Hartless pass down to Icehouse had roughly 6-18" packed and soft. Not sugar or icy. Ran fine.

I'd imagine with warm temps to-date....much much less.

We went up on 12/29. You'll have to forgive me, my geographical prowess in that area leaves a little to be desired. We came across most of the ice just outside of Georgetown, prior to stumpy meadows.

No wonder we didn't see that car.

ice house road to wentworth was for the most part a very easy drive in, the snow and ice on the slabs leading up postpile denied me more than once, by pass and all the way to ellis at 10 am, light hail/snow
mobbed to soup bowl afte rresetting innerbead and that was full and walked thru, onto little slice, the pirates were having there winter run and were at the camp by the bathrooms went thru little slice and up the hill, there was 3" of fresh snow, lite a fire had lunch came out trail was nice and fun, not much else

Granite bowl and loon entrance had some ice and slippery spots. Ice house road had black ice coming back this afternoon. Post pile was soaked and slippery but still made it up. No snow to speak of anywhere.

It's a bad situation here, we desperately need some rain and snow. I foresee an early opening to a lot of trails, but with heavy fire restrictions earlier than normal. I can't say that camping is the same without the fire, just something about it.

they closed them on Jan 1st when many of them were dusty....I do not think they have the ability to open them any earlier than April 1.

This still pisses me off

What's the law or whatever that lets them close early or keep it closed past April 1st but not open now.
...not that I believe any of the reasons for closure in the first place - still not the frog in that pot

Travel Management NEPA for each forest ends with a forest order. That Forest Order is the force of law.

Once again it comes back to our friend Karen.
