Well we decided to head out and see if the gate was open to Norrish, and what kind of snow was up there today. Wasn't sure how much snow we'd find judging by the road in

We found the gate open, and were starting to see signs of snow

which of course lead to more snow

We got as far as the turn off to 6 feet under where the road was washed out, making an entrance into the trail kinda sketchy

Looks a lot more challenging now with this years weather

We took a walk up the trail trying to figure out new angles of approach

Riley thought we were nuts

So we turned around and decided to follow some of the off shoot trails. Well given that they weren't travelled recently, or even at all this year, it made it rather interesting

Burried it right up to the bumper

Riley wasn't impressed

She decided she was 'outta here' in case I tried to get her pulling winch cable for me

We followed a few trails that just pretty much petered out and we had to turn around

Whoops, Indir blows a bead

A quick lift with the jackall and a shot of air from his OBA we were on our way again

We ran into this traffic jam around one of the bends. There was about 4 trucks out of the group that were stuck

I winched the big Chev back onto the trail so that we could get passed the group

All in all it was a mild day of snow wheeling, but fun none the less

Kickass we were up there yesterday I think i see my tire tracks in the 3rd pic haha. Strangely enough we also came across some guys stuck in the exact same spot, most likely the same holes we dug him out of!!!
