The volcanic Cascades Mountains have fumaroles (hot air vents) that melt the snow from the bottom. I was just cruising along when suddenly the snow caved in and I crashed into the rocks below!
My wife said that we weren't going to make it. I told her we would. I have yet to live it down!
After three days of wheeling and several mud pits, I didn't take the trail sign that listed this pit as a truck-eater seriously. Clearly, I was mistaken.
