So yesterday we got 15" of fresh. I figured a nice walk in the woods is better than fighting overly crowded slopes anyday.
I showed up at Ken Lockwood Gorge (about 5 miles away) at 10am hoping it wouldn't be too crowded. It's a 1.6 each way mile dirt road along a very scenic river (full of trout BTW) and the entire area is a state park. Just beautiful spot when not overcrowded. To my suprise, I was the first person there other than a ATV that appeared to have rode there the night before
