Re: 2020 Snow Level

Easy day, just walked the road from the gate, took the main trail down to the old road that goes back to the hairpin turn in the road. No snow except for a very small patch on the road just before the parking lot.

Re: St Helens Lake 02/20/2020

I don't work tomorrow, and I am sooooo tempted to do this. It looks incredible! From GE imagery, it looks like there is a road bench on the south face of Coldwater Ridge, in the 3800'-4200' level, that stops in the flat-ish drainage between the ridges.
