Failed hike
4/20/18 The road leading up in the shadow of the hill had snow on the road. The snow made 6-8" high speed bumps which, because of my clearance and the grade of the hill, my Honda Accord would not make it. We nearly got stuck after driving 3.5 hours to get to that point from Idaho Falls, Idaho.
The road conditions past where we were did not get any better. I got out to see if it would be worth getting stuck, but sheets of ice and ruts of snow greater than 8" high was enough to make the choice for me.
We could have probably walked 5 mi up the road (from the overlook at 41.876205, -111.572547) to the trail head, but we ended up going to the Wind Cave closer to Logan which was pretty great and doable with the remaining daylight.
