North Fork Wood Camp Hollow,
Ski/Snowshoe, February 19, 2012
Nine people participated in this activity. Tim, Jeanne,
Dan, and Kathy were on snowshoes. Skiers Dave W, Dave P,
Jane, Monika and Jim appreciated the 6 inches of new snow.
We followed the summer hiking trail towards the Jardine Juniper,
and except for a moose climbing the slope to the east, the
uphill portion was uneventful. However, snow
conditions prompted most of the skiers to remove their skis and
walk down the open sagebrush area near the west fork. Our
lunch stop was near the sign marking the first
switchback, where we chatted with a young couple who had camped
out nearby. Our round-trip distance was 3.6 miles, with
750 feet of elevation gain.
