This road off the park loop road is closed in winter, along with most of the loop road . Snowmobiles can use it and usually pack the snow to make a nice walking surface. We parked at the gated entrance and walked up to the loop road where we were stopped by a ranger and given a warning about having a dog off leash. With Kelley on leash we continued to the auto road and started up. We were passed by four snowmobiles but this last snow was the fluffy kind and did not pack so they were not much help.
The weather and the light were very variable, from completely gray, to partially cloudy, to sunny and back again. The ice and snow were still very pretty and I took a lot of pictures and then had a hard time editing so there are more than necessary in this post. Mostly just pictures of the road and some views
