Please note that I am unable to add photos to the gallery section of the website.  We have had problems with it for a while now, unfortunately.  There is a new redesign of the website in the works and it should include a much better photo gallery then what we had before and currently have.  My apologies for the the inconvenience!

The trip to Coffee Pot Mountain got as far as the top of the hill of the 6503 Forest Service only to find that beavers had flooded the road  by damming the creek that ran down beside the road. Since we were not far from the Crooked River Park we changed our trip and went  to Livingstone Springs instead. We had steady but very light rain for the whole trip – and still the weather remains mild and snowless with keen snowshoe enthusiasts biting their nails anxiously – don’t fret guys it’ll come!
