  Mount Lola, June 7, 2016
We went on a recon mission to find some accessible snow. After being turned back three times (Once due to lack of snow and two times due to too much snow on the roads) we finally made it to the Jan-Micheal Vincent Danger Bridge below Mount Lola Ridge.

On the way we saw a little toad on the side of a dirt road.

Would you dare to drive your vehicle over the Jan-Michael Vincent Danger Bridge?

Due to it's proximity to the Jan-Michael Vincent Danger Bridge, this has been designated as a triple-black-diamond run on the Mt. Lola trail map.
