After getting stuck in the snow at Snow Peak, Mike and I decided to stay on the roads more traveled. Silver Creek Falls is also a great place to see some snow. The week before we went, they actually closed the area for a bit due to the size of the icicles. Luckily, there were still a few for us to see.
We’ve had a lot of snow this year. More than normal, and it has stayed on the ground longer than normal. But that didn’t stop me from wanting to go play in more snow. Since we were kids, Mike and I have been going to Snow Peak. We have a lifetime of good memories associated with this place.
We drove up, thinking we would stop when the snow got too deep. There is a logging road that takes you to a short trail that climbs up to an abandoned fire lookout. You can see the whole world from up there, it seems like. That was our goal.
So we set off on a bright, sunny day. And we almost made it. But this year the snow was deep. So deep, we got stuck for the first time ever. And had to call for help.
We did manage to get some hiking in. We walked back down the road to meet our rescuer. Adam, you are my hero.
Making the best of it.
Tiny little mouse butt prints!
We dug and spun for about an hour. Adam pulled us out in a few minutes.
Next time, we’ll wait for a warmer winter.
