My ride couldn't get up the entrance road to Cache Creek today so I had to start from Cedar Lane.
Fortunately there was plenty of snow and the trek up to the parking lot was smooth.
Entering Cache Creek proper there was a nice track.
It was partly cloudy and a little windy. When the clouds blocked the sun it got cold and a few times I was thinking that I should have brought an extra layer. When the sun came out, that extra layer wouldn't have been necessary. Next time I will bring a vest.
By the time I hit two miles I was starting to sweat and all thoughts of cold forgotten.
Along the way I met some backcountry skiers on AT skis.
