You going?

Any one know how much snow the area ended up getting? I've heard it's a lot.

The wife and I are still about 90% sure we're in - but I don't want to hold you guys up. I'm now locked f/r but no winch...

Yes me and my son are going, no need to worry about a Winch, all three of the rigs that I know are going have winches.

Re: Spring Creek 05/26

Dumont exit where the gas station with the starbucks is, take the frontage road west, pass under the highway, take a left onto Alvarado road, just past the bridge is the trail head on the left.

Re: Spring Creek 05/26

Man’s been at the trailhead since 8:05, I’m either early or super late. There’s a badass buggy unloading tho.
