First attempted hike

By | May 12, 2013

Debo Powers reports that the North Fork Hiking Team tried to hike to Cyclone on Saturday, May 11. Several miles up the road to Cyclone, the road was impassable due to snow. We hiked about a mile further up the road before the snow was too deep and soft and we were “post-holing” with every step. A large bear had left post-holes in the snow ahead of us. Because the post-holing was hard, slow work and had ceased to be fun, we turned back. Hiking to Cyclone will have to wait another week or so. Thanks for the report, Debo. If anyone else is out and about and would like to send in some North Fork recreation reports, they would be appreciated.
