I parked just around the corner from the road closed sign
Even the lower part of the road has some rock fall
The first icy spot on the road was not far beyond the road closed sign
Hard, clear ice. This is still before the first switchback turn.
I stopped briefly to talk to Tauru and CrazyBlindChick
North Fork creek crossing. I had to did dig around a bit to find the sign.
Coverage in the North Fork drainage is good now but still soft.
I was glad I wasn't hauling a heavy pack like everyone else.
LBSL. There is running water at the outlet of the lake.
Conditions at LBSL and beyond were a bit nasty. Windy and cold with snow flurries.
I decided to take the shortcut back to the Portal
