Larch Open (almost)
Larch Mt. on Saturday. Gate closed at 10.5 miles so no cars but road was completely clear of snow until mile 14.0 where they stopped plowing. I walked the 1/3 of mile to parking lot. Snow is probably 4 feet deep up there. Another 1/4 mile hike in snow to Shepards Point view spot. The view was spectacular!!! Now is the time to go, since cars can't get by gate. Return trip is a 3.5 mile descent at 30 mph without pedaling. 70 miles round trip from NE PDX, look at google map and take Hurlburt, Little Page then Louden to Larch Mt. road. Be forewarned parts of Louden are 16% grade.
