Fun in the Snow up Yellow Fork Canyon

Alder and I did some exploring up Yellow Fork Canyon at the top of Rose Canyon Road in Herriman yesterday afternoon. The weather was great and the snow deep as we made our way up the main road. At the first picnic area we moved from the road to the single track but soon aborted that plan due to the soft, deep, comparatively unpacked snow. I was surprised how deep and soft the snow was, even on the main road. Last year I rode my bike up the road but with the high frequency of storms this winter there hasn't been enough time to really pack down the route. It made for good fun though as Alder enjoyed making snowballs, digging holes, making snow angels and seeing how far he could sink into the drifted areas.
