Interesting historical route, Rich P!
Walked along one of my favorite local trails today almost up to Wallace Lake, but the going was slow, due to deep snow and lots of storm damage. Had a nice visit with Kevin, the park ranger who was out with his chain saw clearing many downed trees. Some pretty amazing storm drama up there!

Just fine.  Good workout with adequate assist when you need it.  I picked up 3 of these given the price before they sold out.  If anyone is interested in a test ride or purchasing one just PM me.

Teneriff was a winter wonderland yesterday - though I had to hike through some rain to get there....  well packed trail, no need for spikes and  some one handy with a saw cut most of the blow downs.   He/she was fast because it was done while I was above.   Thank you muchly for that!   This was the long way up, quite a few hikers too!

Kamiak Butte March 12, 2020

Not feeling like a long drive, I hit the local hill for a 4-mile loop. Up Pine Ridge and down West End Primitive. Quiet on the trail save for some owls in the lower forest. A little ice but no need for microspikes.

No Danger. The smaller sign says "you won't get back to the parking area this way." Maybe a warning to wayward hikers.

Went to McDonald Mountain just south of Selleck/Kerriston. There's no reason to drive here: there are two or three nice panoramas, but they are few and far between. As a student, I had done a report on Green River logging towns and visited Selleck and Kerriston, getting a few photos of the stacks and ruins. The owner was nice enough to let us visit again. After that, onwards to the confusing maze of logging roads on McDonald, a lot of which didnt show up on both caltopo and google maps, so there was a bit (6 miles in total) worth of backtracking both on the way up and down.
