North Fork Snoqualmie 12.2.08

With the big dump of snow I knew climbing probably wasn't going to happen but I still wanted to get out. I chose to break out the cross country skis in hopes of getting some miles in. I had no issues on making it to the North Fork Road and once on the road it had enough travel to make the going quite easy. I had some concern about dragging bottom on the center portion of the road so I pulled off sooner than I probalby needed to. I was able to make it just North of Fuller Mt. where I found a place to park. I don't do a lot of xcountry skiing so it is always an adventure. For this trip I am not sure I would call it skiing at all. Maybe a better descriptions would have been walking with skis on. I am by no means an expert on snow but this snow sucked. I don't think I slid more than a foot the entire ten miles I went. I had hoped to drive further and head toward the old Cascade Lookout but having to pull over so far South I was content to make my way to the new bridge spanning the North Fork. The snow seemed to become worse on the way out so I ended up just walking the last two miles to the car. All in all it was a good day out but I really need to look at more suitable equipment.

Approx 10 miles 3:30 car to car.
