Snow Lakes 11-4-15

Photos by Bob W. and Dan

The drive to and from the trailhead was a bit dicey today with spots of black ice on DIM. Going in on NF-3484 we saw a good example of bad parking karma with an upside down sedan wedged solidly into the ditch.

This was our third snow hike of the season but it had far and away the best winter weather. Temperatures hovered around freezing but with full sun and no wind we found it to be an excellent hiking day.

As we went in on the Nannie Creek trail there was a dusting to up to an inch of snow coating the trail and the trees. As we turned and headed up the aptly named Snow Lakes trail the snow depth gradually increased from and inch or two up to 4" to 6" in places.  Bob H. did an excellent job trail finding / breaking.

We enjoyed a leisurely lunch in the sun above Heart Lake before turning around and returning to the cars. We didn't stop for refreshments today due to the lack of an open restaurant within driving range.
