Nov 9, 13, Mt Baker, Squak
« on: 11/09/13, 10:56 PM »

Snow to Schriebers Meadow in the morning, but it was melt out down low. Trail can be taken in skins maybe a mile and a half from the lot, a few carries on creeks if you care about your gear. Flagrant disregard for base material rewards those willing, by not getting you very far.
We stopped well short of the glacier. Coverage is good for November, I hit no rocks or trees (aside from the trail of questionable decisions). Freeze thaw happened making the snow firmer, not pow, but no breakable crust. It rode very well.

A bit late on the pictures, but these are too classic not to post.  Word to the wise, if you're following me down a hiking trail with 6" of snow on it do NOT try to copy what I do.  I'm really stupid and somehow things seem to work out for me, you may not be so lucky.
