    Thumbs up Trail Report W.P.C. Willow AK. 3/3/10

    It's Iditarod Weekend!
    Sunday at 2 they take off for Nome and everbody and there kids will be here. Trails were all goomed this week but with temps up to 40 they are being run hard. Still hopeing for a little new snow would make things a lot better. It has been frezzing at night. We will be out marking trail on Sat. and grooming before and after the race on Sun. There has been a little overfow on the lakes so be careful.
    Remember we take the bumps so you don't have too!!!

    Exclamation Where?

    All the lakes are great for seeing the mushers.
    But remember parking is the problem!!!
    30,000 come to Willow to watch the race!

    Thumbs up Good View!

    Out on the river just beyond Corral Hill Trail I think would be one of the best spots!!!! If you want to be out of Willow.

    Default What is the overflow status

    of the Nancy Lakes Portage system? In particular Lynx Lake? Yes I know stay on the 'trail' and all will be peachy. Overflow makes my darling wife VERY un-peachy. Truth be told, I'm not a big fan of overflow, duh!

    Using my preferred route, I would enter the system at the creek that flows into Lynx Lake just south of the midpoint on the east side of Lynx and then swing out northerly on to the lake keeping to the west of the small island that lies south of the pinch point. We'll be traveling from the Big Lake trail system destined for our "secret" vantage point to root on the doggies and their humans. We've made this trek more than once and less than a million times. It's by far the shortest for us considering our starting point. I have alternates in mind to get us to Willow that avoid the Nancy Lakes completely but are considerably longer.

    Info older than yesterday, Thursday, is ancient history...we rode thru there on Saturday, last after the Deska Poker Run. I was out grooming the the Big Lake Trails on Monday and Tuesday. It hit 41F Wednesday here at the RRYY Ranch out by Big Beaver Lake.

    Tanks in advance

    Thumbs up Better!

    With the colder weather the overflow problem seem to be getting better. I don't think that you should have any problems by Sunday!!!
