We didn't want to wait any longer, we just had to see how the cabin made it through the harsh Sierra winter at 9600'.
The main road was plowed but not the dirt track that leads to our place. This was as far as we could drive. It was only about 200' over the snow.
Fortunately, there wasn't a lot of snow piled in front of the door. As far as we could tell there is no damage. Until the water is turned on we won't know about any plumbing problems, there are often some surprises.
We took a walk up to the resort and were pleased to find it open for the season. I had food to last us a couple of days but no ice cream. Hubby might go into withdrawel but for the ice cream they had on sale.
I inquired of the owner how the summer was shaping up. She said this was the first year that she had not been fully booked.
We checked out the lake across from the resort. It's just beginning to thaw. Too soft for ice fishing, to solid for fly fishing; the fishermen will just have to wait a bit longer.
This little guy is impatient for the season to start. Where are all those vacationers? He can beg as much as he wants, I won't feed him.
We had some snow flurries during our stay at the cabin and more fell on our way home. The sign said "carry chains". Who carries chains at the end of May? We hadn't expected snow but it didn't stick on the road and we have all season tires on our 4-wheel drive so there was no problem.
