Very snowy still when I went. Crags was accessible via 2wd and low clearance, snowy going in but muddy going out. Broke trail the whole way to my turn-around spot and VERY glad to have my snowshoes. Photos include the trail starting out and snow where I turned back. Unfortunately the photos don‘t really capture just deep the snow drifts were. It was still fun, but I didn‘t realize there would be that much snow still AND no trail to follow!

Apparently March-like conditions in late April . . .
And rumor has it . . . more snow in the forecast . . .

Possible late start to Summer season on the Peak . . .
