Our first stop was Missoula, where we headed toward Lolo Pass in search of snow cover. While most of the Rockies were suffering even more than usual for a solid snowpack, the situation seemed particularly wanting in the Missoula area. We drove the Impreza up a snowy Forest Service road slightly farther than we reasonably should have. Unfortunately the road was the only part of the hillside with snow on it, but we managed to have a good day out anyway.
