Great page! Obviously a labor of love. Have you lived in the area or something?
I have a snow MOuntain experience. We once planned to backpack up there in September. We drove in from the south (Clear Lake) on perhaps 30-50 miles of dirt FS roads. Diddn't see many people...until we got to the trailhead. Couldn't find a spot--it was huntin' season! The pickup next to us had about 30 empty shell casings, perhaps 20 beer cans, and an empty fifth of Jcak Daniels. Aw shucks, we forgot the food. Let's get the f*ck out of here. Camped instead at a cool, foggy KOA in FOrt Bragg and gorged on blackberries all evening.
I found out about Snow Mountain in the '100 Classic Hikes' book, and decided to check it out. By the time I'd decided to do the page, though it was apparent that it would be time-intensive, it was too late to turn back. It was a lot of fun going there and checking it out, anyway, though. Bummer that when I finally got up, the views sucked, but it was still worth it. I could see the area filled with hunters- the recreational users seem to be more 'diverse' than in the other mountainous areas I've seen in California. Do you plan on going back? Did any of the beer cans have anything left in them?
Great page Dirk. It was nice seeing this peak on the drive back from Hubris!
Nice page, I am glad you put this mountain in here. I hope to climb this mountain someday.
Great Page. Lots of good info!
Thanks for the vote!
Hey nice one, Dirk.
Thanks for the vote, Brian. Hey, just got up 2 more volcanoes (both over 17,000', too)! Take care, D
No kidding! Didn't know you were heading off on a trip. Where did you go? Sounds like S. America??
(I'll have to check your profile page for pics.................)
Ah, Africa! Nice. I'll watch for the trip report.
Thanks for putting up this excellent page - it was a big help during my trip up there this past weekend.
Thanks for the great directons. An alternative for people coming from I-5 north of Willows, I feel that 162 west from Willows is a much better way to get to Stonyford.
