Jungle Creek Road 1.22.07

After last weeks attempt I was back to take advantage of the 2 miles I had already bulldozed. I was happy to find 25+ degree warmer temps than last week. I decided to try and ski the portion I did last week. I was happy to shave a full half hour off of my previous weeks time to my stopping point. I changed to snowshoes since I once again was forced to break trail. The Jungle Creek Road only climbs about 600 ft of elevation in the first 4 miles which took me nearly 3 hours due to the slow conditons. At 3200ft I left the road and made my way up the open and mostly easy grade. I climbed to around 3700ft and reached my turnaround time. I had hoped to make my way to Goldwater Peak, but I sadly didn't have adequate time. I enjoyed plunge stepping my way back to the road. I returned to my skiis and and switched back for the final few miles.

approx 10 miles 1100ft of climb 5:30 car to car
