Snow Hike in Chloride Flats
March 11, 2022
A sudden freak snowstorm blew in overnight. We hustled out of the house, hoping for a snow hike. We were aiming for Bear Mountain, but the road was a mess — slick and slippery mud — and at a hairpin turn, it turned to ice. We carefully backed up and found ourselves at the junction with Chloride Flats Road — an abandoned Forest Service road that has been on my list of many months, since it runs south and connects with the trails on the ridge behind our house.
