Ryan and I parked at a small pullout just down from Johnsons Pass and headed up 1,500 feet through deep snow and trees.
It was awesome to get above the fog layer and into the sun. It was cold.
The snow at the top was awesome, but the base disappeared farther down and we scraped over rocks and trees...it was kind of ugly. Definitely not lap worthy so be bailed out the valley down an old mining road.
