Snowed out of Gifford Pinchot

Next day it was up early with some eggs, then a long hike that was cut short by many feet of snow on the whole trail.  So we drove through the beautiful mountains and tried to make it passed St. Helens down to Trout Lake.  But we were stopped by many feet of snow.  Back tracked about 100 miles and stopped at a pretty state park with lots of families and kids (it did not feel like roughing it).  But the lake was nice!

    Evan and I were similarly snow stopped trying to make it up to Elk Meadows in Mt. Hood wilderness – approx 5k. This year has the lowest July snowlines in our adult lives and areas like Goat Rocks in G.Pinchot may clear late or not clear at all – still 6′ deep up thar.
