Jessica and I stopped here last fall when we motorcycled up for a night at the Sourdough Lodge. We knew the kids would love it. The tiny car, not so much.

We had seen it when we stopped by on the motorcycle last Fall and knew the kids would enjoy Kirkham Hot Springs so Jess and I packed them up for a day in the mountains. I didn’t realize how much snow there would be.

I had been hitting some of the snow clods in the road for sport until one turned out not to be snow but a snow-covered rock. If you look close you can spot the bent rim.
