Passed by West Fork two days after snowfall, and decided to check it out. The parking lot was almost empty at 10am on a Sunday. I've never even been able to drive into that parking lot in the past because it was always full. Temp was 15° and windy. The entire trek was beautiful in the snow. These pics don't even begin to capture how pristine it was. The creek was flowing strong under the bridge. Further up, there was about 0.5 inch layer of ice atop the creek. The creek crossings were an adventure, with ice covering each rock and log. We made it across the first 2 crossings without falling or getting our feet wet, using available sticks for support. The third crossing looked a lot more treacherous, so we didn't attempt it. We walked along the side as far as we could go and took more pics. The overhangs looked impressive covered in snow. Overall it was an enjoyable adventure and provided a new perspective of West Fork. We saw only 2 other small groups the entire time, both of which were assessing and/or attempting the first creek crossing. As we arrived back to the parking lot, more vehicles were pulling in. I wonder how they did at the creek crossings.
