Recent trip reports indicated that goats were spotted at the lake. This may be a last chance to get here before the snows force the Mountain Loop Highway to close. Bring traction devices, be prepared for wintry conditions (snow is in the forecast), and let's hope the goats are out. We will stop at Olympic Pizza in Granite Falls on the way home for food and socializing. Riders should bring cash to offset the cost of driving.
