Winter is here, and at the Rubicon

Snow has arrived on the Rubicon Trail. But it looks like Placer County has yet to figure out their 2022-23 plowing routine…

But the push of extra snow toward the trailhead has begun. The true plow line should be right up the middle of the photo below.

Proof my Grand Cherokee went ‘snow wheeling’.

For the record, it doesn’t have a whole lot of ground clearance! Yes, I was scraping the snow in spots.

But it was gorgeous up there. And the bathrooms were unlocked.

Please be safe out there. Remember to pack food, water, extra clothing, a shovel, recovery equipment, etc. Be prepared to spend the night. Don’t go alone. Let someone know where you are going and when you will return. Carry a ham radio.
