Good news that big sluice is clear, sounds like some saw work is needed in the springs.Trav is supposed to post pics today...
20' drifts. But they look like 40' with Hussey standing next to them. LOL! (jk Huss)
Even.without the snow, the log jam would stop everyone from making it without going off trail.
Big sluice is clear..... Indian trail before buck has some snow, but is easily done...
We made it to the springs was actually pretty easy going. The log jam just needs some one to clear it. Real lumberjack saws will work not those homeowner fag saws. Looking forward to heading back in on Thursday.Uhhh.... saws ain't gunna do it.
It's gunna need a chopper or heavy equipment.
Thanks for taking time to clear the trail and work the drainage... if everyone helps a little, that minimizes bypasses around 'seasonal tough stuff' :cool2:Cleared a couple logs out of the trail down by the springs, and started some water draining.
Just tread lightly and be prepared to pull cable instead of matting the skinny pedal... the worst that can happen is that you just run in and out as far as you're comfortable, and maybe don't make it as far as you'd like. Buck Lake is a great destination, but this time of year, you can camp anywhere and have water handy for cooking, cleaning, and etc. The water at Buck can only be a few degrees warmer than solid water in snowbank form... definite shrinkage, either way. :laughing:We're coming from Washington State, so we have to make a go or no-go decision within the next day or two at the most.
