First to the summit…Posted: June 2, 2020
The Tahoe Donner 4-Wheelers were out yesterday on the Rubicon to replace weather worn signage on the Miller Lake sign board.
It didn’t take too long to staple some laminations to a piece of plywood.
So we decided to check out the Richardson Lake Trail that runs up to Sourdough Hill. The first sizable snow drift looked formattable.
John made it but I slide a little sideways and had to pull a winch line like the others behind me.
There were some longer sections where we had to dig a notch for the upper wheels to prevent sliding off the trail.
There was one tree across the trail that was easily removed as we were prepared for such issues.
Most of the snow section we tried to drive as they were. It got a little tippy at times. Of course the photo doesn’t share the feeling!
After summiting Sourdough, we run up the Buck Lake Trail. Very wet and snow still at the top. We didn’t make it too far up the Ellis Peak/Lake Trail. This is a shot on the way down.
Of course we’re out there for the beauty as well as the challenge.
