Snow

Intermittent snow - not hard to cross

Took the loop trail from the south parking lot down to the beach and back. The road is easy enough to navigate in the snow. The park was lively but not busy, good mix of hiking, skiing, and sledding. The stairs were pretty slippery so I actually wished I had microspikes to make it a little easier, but it is very doable in just regular boots. Not too much more to add, just wanted to share pretty pictures!

I'll ask - how were the roads getting there? Emerson? I did ski Greenlake yesterday (Sat) - no driving involved.

I thought the road to the south parking lot was totally fine! The lot itself is snow covered but seemed like all the cars made it ok.
