Forest Road Hike

Hike Distance: 8.2 miles      Yearly Hike Distance: 1666.5 miles

Elevation Gain: 1806 feet      Yearly Elevation Gain: 183108 feet

It started out very cloudy but still comfortable.  There was no snow at the TH but as we ascended the snow become more prevalent until we found ourselves in a winter wonderland!  We only reached an elevation of just over 3000 feet but the snow was 3-6 inches deep everywhere.  For a brief time it snowed profusely and was beautiful to see.

This was our first hike in the snow this season and we greatly enjoyed it.  Towards the end of the hike the sun started breaking through the clouds.  Our drive home was filled with a beautiful sunset.  A truly great day. 🙂
