We lucked out! The forecast was for showers, and in fact, it rained most of the day in the Valley. But we actually saw the sun quite a bit! Moreover, we have a brand new member who is young, very congenial, and loves to break trail; she even checked in with the rest of us several times to be sure we didn’t want to take turns!

This trail which is on the east side of Odell Lake is little used and we didn’t see any other skiers. We did, however, see the remains of a large animal which we thought was an elk — the head (sans meat) was on top of the snow and the rest of the body was barely visible underneath about ten feet of snow. Two thirds of the trail is a wide road, but then we turned off onto a little used, much more narrow road. There we encountered large mogels, plus downed trees. Most of us took the circuitous route around the trees, but one person demonstrated his limbo skills and went underneath. Thanks to Laurie for driving and to the group for a great trip.

Skiers were: Chrissy Anderson, Mary Arnott, Laurie Funkhouser, Sat Nam Khalsa, Kurt Koivu and Lana Lindstrom, leader.
