  • Conditions on Graham and Balsam Lake 2-3-2018

    Really cold at the trailhead but once we got going and were sheltered from the wind it was sunny and comfortable. Snow was a consistent 4 inches it seemed from bottom to top. The new snow was snowshoeable but a boy scout troop hit the trail slightly ahead of us, so microspikes worked fine in the beaten track. No enough snow at the end of the hike to prevent hitting a rock or two though. Ice in some very few spots but some other scrambles (approaching Balsam Lake) were snow covered and easy to ascend. Thanks Hiker Joe for a great day...

    Earlier this week the trail was so rutted we hiked across Schoolhouse Ridge to escape the ankle twisters. Glad the new snow has filled them in.
