suzi the psychic really had to work on this one, and she made me proud. she even tried to be a snow cat 'cause i asked her to. it was my fault- not her's.
i had tried to access out of markleeville, but the gate on hwy89 was closed(locked) and i couldn't find anybody at the inn to unlock it for me.
i drove around the gate by going into nevada and working my route in reverse.
i thought i'd be able to work out to markleeville on sunday.
that didn't work.
i got her dirty.
a bit of trail info: to get off the barney riley towards markleeville, one may use the 310(part of which seems to be known as "tie rod hill"). it was blocked by snow drift.
i know another way that meets the 310 further up, but it was not passable near haypress flat.
coming in via loope canyon is probably still a couple of weeks out.
i had to grunt back to the b riley and run back thru nevada.
if i follow my tracks i can't get lost.
here's another view of snowcat suzi. she got me out.
i'm trying again in a couple of weeks.
i'm putting her mud boots on this time.
