Road open almost to Leavick site, large trucks/ 4x4's could probably make it all the way. Cold and windy day, not a lot of snow in the drainage, I brought skis hoping to make use of them, left them with the vehicle. Snow shoes were definitely not necessary, I only used them on a 1/2 mile section of the road, and that could have been avoided. May want yak-trax or something like them, a few sections were a bit icy, we did it with out them and were just fine.

A storm was coming in later in the day, could have dumped enough snow to need snowshoes, but majority of route was fairly devoid of snow.

Did you by chance get any views or pictures of Horshoe? Curious if the snow amounts are any different there compared to Sherman. I'm assuming not, but I'm heading up there later this week and hoping to bring the skis like you. Thanks.

I believe Horseshoe looked a bit more promising. I will look at the few pictures I took when I get home and see if I can find one
