2500 acres of state owned forestry land.
Logging roads wind for miles.
You can literally drive these roads from Portland to Astoria if you know
A logger friend of mine called and said he wasn't allowed to go work
because the snow is too deep.
Time for some hillbilly snowboarding.
winch ----just in case----check
Red diesel fuel----for fire starter---check
Drive till I cannot plow through the snow anymore.
Find a place to park where the hill seems to go another mile or so
Probably hiked 2 miles.
Sun reflecting off everything white.
Views of the Columbia River and all of Astoria below.
What an amazing and free experience.
2 mile powder run down a virgin road of white.
No lift ticket.
Warm cozy fire at the bottom.
