Yay Snow

A mid-April Powder Day - Woo Hoo!
Love looking at Max & Zorro towing me quickly around corners! Zoom zoom!

The morning's outing ranged from "lightly snowing" to "dumping snow"; but it was snowing all morning. Yay Snow!
Dumping snow as we can barely see 10-20 yards down the trail. Yay Snow!

The best thing about this storm? It brought the French Gulch Trail back into use! We had declared French Gulch dead about 2 weeks ago as the lower portion of the trail was down to dirt. But, the storm from yesterday into today brought French Gulch back to life, look at this beautiful terrain in upper French Gulch:
Breaking trail again on one of our favorite trails. Woo Hoo!

A great time had by all:
"Yay Snow!" exclaim my partners at our turnaround point in French Gulch.

Today's video clip is a tribute to "Yay Snow" as it shows the pattern for most of the outing - the GoPro was unable to remain free of blurring from falling snow for more than a minute all day. Yay!
