ONF Deer Ridge Trail, Jan 4 2017
« on: 01/06/17, 07:45 PM »

Just enough low elevation snow 6-8 inches made for a pleasant skin access via the Deer Ridge Trail to Deer Park environs. Access via the Slab Camp Road is no problem right now for 4X4s. We crested the Ridge gaining about 3000 ft after a few hours of skinning through light powder under bluebird skies and had just enough time to soak up some rays, eat and reboot before we cruised back down the narrow trail doing our best to avoid the lurking sharks and trees below.

Thank you, partner. I enjoyed every minute of that tour. Yesterday was beautiful, too, but visibility wasn't as crisp. Thank you, friends of Phil Hall for that bench at 4200: there is no better place to sit down and gaze at the heart of the Olympics. Phil is in heaven.
