Town and the valley are busy with people like nothing is different.  I have still been working part-days at school in Cashmere with meals distribution and bilingual parent communication for internet access for students.  ANYWAY, today is Saturday and no lift-served skiing, so time to head up the Icicle.  There is no longer any berm/sawhorse barricade on the Icicle road.  I drove easily past 4th of July TH, close to Johnny Creek campground.  Early morning it's solid packed snow/ice, but by the afternoon, sun-softened and rutted by those that insist on trying their luck to press further.  I saw a low-slung Tesla make it as far as Johnny Creek and a Subaru stuck just past there.  Talked to a happy young fellow from Colorado, FS employee, who summited Grindstone and spent the night in a snow cave up there.  I descended to the old road Ida Creek CG and then on the new road to just shy of Chatter Creek.  Great Day!

Thanks for the condition report. This time of year when the bright sunshine comes down on partially snow covered roads and trails offers such promise for what's to come. Spring is around the corner!
