Winter Scramble - Annette Lake

Original plan was to go to Mt Catherine, but due to stupidity on our part, we tried to drive the last 200 yards to the parking lot and got stuck. Then when finally getting back toward the "T", we were blocked a stuck truck which we helped dig out. Having lost two hours, we decide to just go to Lake Annette. Remember: Never drive on snow covered dirt roads. You will get stuck. Use two wheel drive for going in. 4 wheel drive is only for getting back out. Always bring a good shovel. The snowshoe trip to Lake Annette was very pleasant. Very cold with light snow falling, but some blue sky. We also went around the lake an ascended up the slope on the far side for awhile, but did not reach the base of Abiel before we turned around.
