WA Snoqualmie Pass
Kelly's report on Facebook of turns so close by attracted my attention, so today I made the solo trip to his TP (Thumbtack Patch). It's been 47 years since I summer walked to Chair Peak basin so I made the error of following Snow Lake trail instead of Source Lake cutoff, but still I made it to the Thumbtack and saw the surprising patch with 250' of fairly smooth annual (not glacial) snow. Four laps of clean butter gave me 1000' for September. 1.5hrs less driving (each way!) than Paradise. These are the worst conditions of my 22year streak.
