We headed over to Yakima again this weekend hoping to make it up to Treephones and some deep snow play. I guess we were just lucky last year when the road to the cabin was open all winter. Normally it is closed at the bottom, open only to snowmobiles. That was the case this year. We parked just below the closure and hiked around for a while trying out our new snow shoes. There was a good 12″ of powder and another 12-18″ of more compact snow beneath it. After a while we headed down to the snowmobile parking area for lunch and digging in the snow banks. When down there we found a great sled hill. Here is a little video.
