  • Glorious Seymour on a Super Sunday - 2/3/13

    Most everyone hit Seymour and the rest of the Sewards early in the season for fear of losing the road to the summer trailhead. I wasn't able to capitalize early, but I did today.

    I figured that after the midweek thaw, the road would be driveable, and it was. Only our car and a truck were in the lot today. I thought there might be more stragglers like me, but not on this day. We saw the other hiker on the way up Seymour when we were descending.

    We were on the trail just before 8 and enjoyed the nice sunny windless day. The long flat portion was ok. And least the wet portions were frozen. It would be nice to ski this route sometime.

    I bare-booted all the way to about 3000 feet before putting on microspikes. Leesa wore her Hillsound trail crampons the entire day. Rev was bare-pawed (and still did the best, and had no problems). The snow depth was less than 8 inches, even at the top.

    Great butt sliding and boot sliding on the way down the herd path.

    Good job Mike Leesa & Rev, looks like it was a much nicer day for snowshoeing than XC skiing.

      Nice TR and your photos are great - love the 'frosty' hair
      An OLD man once said …There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of LIFE, getting back up is LIVING.
