This trail is near Cooke City Montana. off the LULU Pass road. it was sweet. there is still to much snow up there. we got in about 3 miles, the road is 7 miles long. we had to turn back because of snow. i had to deploy the winch 3 times to pull the commander over some tall drifts.

pictures are found here that are not posted here. ;)

Getting stuck on snow drifts, been there, done that, that's how I convinced the wife I needed a winch! =)

Nice pics, no snow down here now. Wife has the truck this weekend, so no wheeling for me.

Looks like a good time. That snow looks pretty deep. Does it ever completely melt?

it was about 57 degrees up there. at that temp. snow melts at about 1-2 inches per day. it has been warm in the mountians since the first of june. there is still about 3-5 feet. so you can imagine there was a snow pack of 5+ feet up there.:eek:
