trip to camp lower forest county

Well did a drive up to camp check on everything go to Kelly hotel have lunch visit a friend, stop in the gun shop and head home. The snow around camp was about knee deep with a 1/2 ice glaze you know the kind of snow that's hurts the deer. Also seen a couple pavilions collapsed along with a porch roof and a trailer roof. Inside camp all good except I forgot to take a full bottle of wine home so now it's contents is on the floor. Hope everyone's camp made it through this winter. Looking forward to the break in weather to open up for the year.

The clarion near Clarington.

The snow piled up around the camp.

view to the back deck out the bedroom with the snow piled up from sliding off the roof.

live laugh love and hunt hard!

Forest county got to love it!

On my way back up again today for a few days. That crust of ice is substantial. Hope we get the thaw that seems to be predicted.

Nice looking place BTW!

Re: trip to camp lower forest county

I'm just hoping for a relatively slow thaw so there isn't flooding across the state. My place is in Potter County, with Kettle Creek bordering my back yard. The ice on most of the creek is 6-8 inches thick, and if ice jams form, flooding can occur. I'll be going up later this week and staying through Monday, and with this warm spell we're getting I might see one heck of a show with an ice-out! I I just hope the water and ice stays in the creek bed!

Re: trip to camp lower forest county

Was up at our camp over this weekend also out of Tionesta along German Hill Rd. Snow was well over 30" deep, knee high for sure. When attempting to walk through it the ice crust on top would hurt one's leg. Today it finally started to warm up. The ice crust was almost gone with the temps in the 40's. It's going to take quite a few weeks for it to melt. I'm sure that ice crust was tough on the deer. With the warmer temps this week, it certainly should get rid of the ice crust plus hopefully some of the snow.

That ice crust was only bad for about 3-4 days. By sunset Sunday, it was back to heavy wet snow. Still lots of heavy, heavy, wet snow, mind you, but the crust has totally softened up. And my place is on the cold side of the hill and always last to thaw.
