Temps were warm early in the week but have dropped to low 20s this morning. Overnight surprise of 2-3 of new snow. The Deep Creek and Jim/Mar loop was put in Tuesday and the snow is deep but stiff in that area. The Tokasitna trail was groomed and the Bunco Creek crossing was put in this week too. The P-ville Road is in great shape. West and North of the Reflector Tree is the best and deepest snow but wet conditions were the norm for the whole area last week so deep Champagne Powder it ain't. Still beautiful area and decent riding.
IT'S HAPPENING FOLKS !! First of 4 new map signs went up yesterday in South Denali !!!
Randy Crosby, Glenn Swan & John Scudder rode out and put up brand new map signs at three points in the Reflector Tree area (at the Tree, Tokisitna Loop turnoff, Safari Lake Trail junction) and Deep Creek at the EWE Trail.
John said it was a bit of a learning curve at first but after a few signs, it didn't take so long.
These new signs are the result of the federal ORTAB Grant that Curry Ridge Riders applied for and won earlier this year. Pretty exciting stuff when you consider the old signs that have been in place were damaged, fading and falling over.
