Another great source of Rubicon information is the “Rubicon Gazette” Facebook page. That is where I found this story and all of these pictures. El Dorado County frequently posts there to keep the users informed.
Just recently posted are the adventures of a few brave soles who traveled on the the Rubicon in the dead of winter. Ok, yes, winter is sort-of dead right now but it’s still brave to wander on to the Rubicon this time of year.
They started from Tahoma and found a few obstacles…
But they made it to Observation…
Believe it or not, they met some rigs coming up Cadillac Hill and out of Rubicon Springs. A group had just driven through the entire trail in March.
The group that entered from Tahoma camped for the night. I don’t know if they checked the weather or not.
They woke up to almost a foot of fresh snow…
Everyone made it out.
Any time of year, please be prepared for the possibility of spending the night. These guys knew they were spending the night and prepared. Not everyone expects to spend the night out there but things happen.
Remember to check out the “Rubicon Gazette” Facebook page for news about the Rubicon Trail.
Enjoy your trail but be safe.
