Some years ago after it snow for two days in the high desert I tried to make it up the Bowen Ranch Rd to DCHS in my four wheel drive F150 that has BF All Terrain Goodrich tires, and it sits maybe 15-18 inches off the ground. Just past the Cattle Gaurd at the next steep hill I kept slidding off the road and could go no further. Then I tried the power line Rd just north of the cattle gaurd and was stopped by deep snow at another steep hill. Lastly I tried the route that goes off of Oak Springs Rd around Round Mountain on the east side and the snow became so deep my undercariage was bottoming out, stopping me again.

Some years later it snowed very heavy but this time I decided to not chance the deep snow in the hills around the Bowen Ranch Rd. Instead I opted to drive over to the Mojave Forks Dam and I hiked all the way up the canyon to DCHS on the PCT. The photos from that hike are at the Wizard's pictures link below, or go to:

Photos from that hike and snow storm period are on pages 43-46.

Nobody was at DCHS all day and the soaking with all of the snow around was very memorable :-)
