TA Report: River Highlands State Park

Date: December 15-16, 2010
Location: River Highlands State Park
Condition of Trails: Frozen hard

Observations: Quick rides on Wednesday and Thursday revealed that winter has come to the Blow Hole bringing frozen ground and a thin dusting of snow. I came expecting copious blowdowns, after Sunday's strong winds and rain, but I found very few. The only sign of the recent deluge is that the Blow Hole is partially flooded (see photo), and the stream running down to it is a little higher than normal. This is a great place to ride in winter although it does run out of light a little bit early, since it slopes to the East.
