    Had a nice slow ride up to Twin Lakes. Just made it to the top and hit about 4' of snow. Not much room to turn around so I just went into the snow and dug the rear tire down. Took some pics on the way up.

    This is the first [west] of the twins.

    It has been a while since I was up there, think the line is about where the road goes.

    The other lake is real close on the other side of those trees.

    Here's a little Petersen who visited one day before you, Cap'n.

    He doesn't look too happy that it's still snowy, but he has waterproof pants on, so he's good to go. Roped up with his Dad to make sure he doesn't have too much fun, he's not even at the terrible two's yet. This one is Viggo, number seven outta eight grandkids and still counting.
