A cold and wet forecast didn't deter us to go Kamikaze Trail to Mt Teneriffe. The trail is similar to Mailbox's. It
started on an old logging road, which turned into a wide trail through the dense forest.
We noticed that there is a new trail being built next to the original one, being more direct but steep. We followed
part of the original trail up to the waterfall. From there, the terrain became steeper and we saw first sign of snow past
As we went up further in elevation, we saw powdery fresh snow on the trail, deeper and deeper. Some section got up to
knee deep. Wonderful !!
We reached the ridgetop and were very careful because it is a steep drop at the ridge.

First trace of snow ..
Fresh snow and windy!
From here on, all snow ...
You can tell it was snowing pretty hard at one point
Just like walking into the snow heaven .... disappearing.
Knee Deep ...
I was breaking trail for a while, and turned around, smile !

On the ridge of Mt Teneriffe.
Beautiful ! Steep drop on both sides.

Going down may be easier ... may be not!
