Although dark storm clouds seemed to be gathering on the horizon this morning, Steve, the Sawtooth ground squirrel saw his shadow and predicted nuclear winter for the next four years. But don’t worry too much, he’s no prognosticating groundhog… he’s just a stupid squirrel. On Wednesday at Alturas Lake, 3 inches of new snow at the highway increased to over a foot at the lake shore. The Trail to the Lake, Over the Hill and South loop were groomed for skate and classic. Wapiti was groomed for skating.
