We finally made it back to Silver Lake; we were last there towards the end of autumn and then the snow came. And came. And came more. The Silver Skagit Rd is an unmaintained road that leads to Silver Lake and further on to Ross Lake, and at the best of times it’s a rough ride, so over the winter it was absolutely impassable and under a meter of snow. The local word was that the road had since been graded (which on this road basically means clearing mudslides and redistributing the gravel and rocks to form a semblance of a surface good enough to drive on) so at the first opportunity we headed up to Silver Lake. I’m looking forward to returning with some film, but for now here are a couple of aerial shots from my Phantom 4 Pro.
