FYI, I just ran Slickrock from the HWY 4 entrance to Utica lake yesterday. The entrance by Alpine Lake has deep snow and is unpassable without at least one locker and a winch. My buddy and I were in TJ's on 35's. His has a front locker and mine a rear. We had to winch at least 15 times to get unstuck while traversing the snow. It took two winches to get out of a couple hairy situations. The deep water crossing almost covered the top of my tires but was totally doable. Once below the snow level, it was clear, beautiful and freakin awesome. We camped at the lower lake (Alpine lake) campground because his wife and kids were there. The primitive camp sites on the trail are where it's at tho. I might join in on the fun if I have the time off. I can't wait to go back.

I just created a trail map using the USGS topo I downloaded. Here's a link to the JPEG. Not sure how well it will work out, but I like playing with maps and I wanted to give it a try. Let me know what you think.

I'm thinking it will be, we're still a month out. Remember when we hit Deer Valley the first time last year there was still a good bit of snow on the far north end (that was the first week of June) and two weeks later it was all gone.

So, hopefully by mid July we won't have to worry about that. Did I already tell you, I got a mosquito net thing to go on my boony hat?
