Gold Lake

Sunday, January 22, 2017
Leader: Jane Hackett
SShoe: 5 miles, 300 ft (Moderate)

Gorgeous day, 32 degrees and sunny. Leaving an hour later then planned met the road conditions were very good. According to weather checked at 7:30 it was snowing and 28. We had no trouble getting to the end of the road. If you did not know where the shelter was you could have skied past it. Dave and Darko went down and checked it out. It was in good shape, but so surrounded in snow that know one has been in it. The rest of use where taking lunch in the sun on the bridge. We ran into a couple of Nordic patrol folks digging steps down to the bathroom. They also dug steps from Hwy 58 up a 6 foot wall of snow so that we could do our trip. It seemed like such a nice day I decided to add an exploratory trip to Lower Marilyn Lake. This added a little over a mile to the trip but took us off the road and into the trees. I was surprised that the lake was not completely frozen over, the puddle in the middle was enough to warn you off. We were back to the cars by 2pm and home before dark.
