This is “snow” much fun!

Hello all,

Just a quick up date on current trail conditions. At this time all trails on the Pagosa Springs side of Wolf Creek pass are still closed. There is still feet of snow in the high country and it will be a while until any trails near us open up. As of now the forest service is saying May 15th. This could change if we get a significant warm up. However, any stream crossings will likely be impassable until sometime in June. That said, all is not lost. I hauled our new 2017 Honda Pioneer 4 seater over Wolf Creek pass a few days ago and found Park Creek Road 380 open and dry. It is about a 40 minute drive (35.4 miles) from our location in Pagosa Springs. It took me a little longer because along the way I had to stop at Treasure Falls for a quick photo op and I also got to see about 8 Bighorn Sheep feeding along side the road.  See attached pictures. Once unloaded, I was able to cut up some snow and mud while driving all the way up to the abandoned mining town of Summitville . Total round trip of about 40 miles. Some of the lower side roads were also open. I’ll head back later this week with our new 2017 Kawasaki Mule 6 seater and break it in properly with a little mud (and snow) on the tires. I love my job!
