      Heading from west to east (White Cloud towards Skillman) minimal, shallow, sparse snow turns to deeper and broader areas of snow. Trail becomes a stream, walled by snow, until a wall of snow blocks the entire trail at Deer Creek. Also downed trees.

      Quite a few down trees and branches over the trail. Snow is patchy, less than 3" deep and still rideable from White Cloud Campground until about Junction House. Past Junction House, heading east to Skillman, more snow over more of the trail. At Skillman Rd, snow 6" deep and impossible to ride to the actual Horse Camp
