    With all of the snow this week, I figured the Cherohala Skyway would offer some beautiful pictures so I was thinking of jumping in the land yacht and going over there. Has anyone crossed it this week?

    Someone posted these pics in the DOGS thread, so I'd say it looks iffy.

    the locals have been going up on it all week. It got about a foot of snow in the last storm. I doubt it has melted/iced any because we have snow still falling in the valley and it hasn't really gotten warm enough down here besides ice the crap out of the roads.
