      Snow as soon as you cross the first creek. Needs a few weeks to melt out.

       Lots of granite slabs to play on all around the lake once you get there.

       Worthwhile detour if you're in the area. The lake is very pretty, and there are some fun rock obstacles to ride down on the way back.
