White River overnight snowshoe - April 15 - 16, 2017

Post by rainrunner » April 16th, 2017, 5:59 pm

If you're looking for a hike free of flower loving crowds, White River is the place! We saw a only handful of people including the famous, Splintercat, who was again delightful to visit with on the trail. Sure, you'll need snowshoes but, for those last escapes to the snow, it's fairly people-free now.
