With these storms that hit we should be good to go for Friday. Weathers looking spectacular, better pack the sunscreen

Sounds good, look forward to sharing the ice with guys again. There's plenty of snow up Monte if your looking for a place to make a quick run

I'm heading up to the SR 150 Gate out of Kamas this morning to check it out.  I'm also going to take a look at some of the reservoirs between Ogden and Kamas as well.  I'll post the results and maybe some pics tonight.

I made the trip up to the Soapstone snowmobile trail head 14 miles up SR 150 (Mirror Lake Hwy) from Kamas.  When I got there about Noon, there were well over 50 trailers up there and they completely filled the small parking lot and were parked along the road coming out for about 1/2 a mile.  On a tuesday no less.  I talked to a couple of folks that were just loading their machines on their trailer to head home.  They had gotten there about 9:30 and went all the way to Mirror Lake and back and said the trail was snow covered the entire way to the top.  We are good to go for this Friday.  They did caution against getting off the road/trail as there wasn't enough snow yet to cover up all the stumps and boulders.  I told him that wouldn't be a problem as we were just going up for the fishing.

I was reminded on the way up when I passed the toll both at just past mile marker 6 that we will all have to have a day pass or annual pass displayed in our vehicles to be able to be there without getting a ticket.  I have a life time Golden Access tag that covers me.  For those that don't have one of those or a current annual pass, be sure to stop at the toll both and get yours on the way up.

I stopped at the Cutting Board restaurant in Kamas and got a picture of the store front and the menu.  Here is the store front:


Here is a copy of the breakfast menu:

Hard to imagine they can stay in business at those low prices.

And here is a picture of the address info:


I did talk with the cook and when I said we would have about a dozen people there at 7 AM on Friday he almost choked.  Seems like he is the only person there at that time of the morning and he thought he might better have some help on Friday.  So, here is a list of who I have going so far:
1.  Me
2.  Muskyon46
3.  Fishon1
4.  Utahguy (wife ?)
5.  HardH2OFishin
6.  PFIDude (wife and kids - how many kids?)

That makes 10 depending on how many kids PFI is bring and assuming Utahguys wife is in.  If any body else is going to be there for breakfast at 7 AM in Kamas, I need to know buy Thursday AM (8 AM at the latest) so I can give the restaurant an accurate head count.

I got this from the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest website.
Quote
The following passes are available for purchase at the Kamas office, Evanston office, and the Bear River Ranger Station (open seasonally).  Self-service fee tubes are located in various areas along the highway.  Annual passes are not available at the self-service fee tubes.

1-3 Day -- $6.00
7-Day -- $12.00
Annual -- $45.00
Passes may also be purchased at these locations.

Samak Smokehouse
Mirror Lake Service (Chevron)
High Mountain Restaurant
Kamas Foodtown (grocery store)
Fees collected go to enhance recreation opportunities and visitor services in the Mirror Lake Highway Recreation Corridor.

America the Beautiful - Interagency Recreation Passes are honored.
We will be eating at The Cutting Board Restaurant which shares the building with High Mountain Restaurant which sells the day passes as well as the Chevron on the corner to the right of the Cutting Board as you face the front of the restaurant.  Click on this picture to see the layout relationship of the buildings just mentioned.  And you can plainly see a huge parking area (outlined in blue) behind these buildings that will accommodate our trailers.   ;D

Coming from the Ogden area using I84/I80, I will be getting off at Wanship and going past Rockport and through Peoa and Oakly which will put The Cutting Board on my left coming into town.  Turn into the parking area on the north side of the restaurant.  See you there at 7 AM Friday.

Thanks Bob.  My wife is joining us, so add her to our count.  See you Friday AM.  We will have to leave around noon or so due to some afternoon commitments.

Thanks, Bob. Convenient to pick up the pass right there where we're parked for breakfast anyway.
See you Friday morning.

The chevron opens at 6am so getting the passes there will work for anyone arriving before the cutting board opens or after breakfast

Great day up in the high country today. Everyone made it in and out with minimal probs along the way. Lots of fish caught. Bows, tigers and a few Brookies. Nothing to big but it is the Uintahs. There was plenty of snow on the road on the way up with around 15in of ice on trial and about 15-20in of snow on top of that. There was some good slush spots around the dam. I'll get some pics up tomorrow.

You have no idea about how much I wanted to make that trip.  But one of my grandsons gave me his cold as a Christmas present on Christmas Eve.  Still coughing and making effective use of the Kleenex box, but starting to feel almost human.  It looks like it was a gorgeous day to be up there and it is great to see all those smiles.  Thanks for all the great pics Matt.  I'm hoping to be well enough to get out this coming week.

Sorry you couldn't make up with us Bob. But, we managed to catch your allotment of fish for you....you're welcome. :)
We'll have to pull together another trip up there.
