Sand Mountain (Bushwhack)
March 20, 2004
This group met at Albertson’s on 57th & Main St. in
Springfield, and proceeded in two cars to the Ray Benson
SnoPark at the Pass.
We started out on the south connector to the South Loop.
After reaching the loop we went west across the road and south
of the snowmobile trail.
We proceeded west through meadows and sometimes thick trees to
a point near Sand Mountain but far enough away from the smell
of 2-cycle engines, where we stopped for lunch.
The day was sunny but with a sometimes strong wind.
After lunch we proceeded north and then back east below HooDoo
and just south of Hayrick Butte to the South Loop Trail north
on the South Lop connector back to the SnoPark.
All had a good ski.
