I was able to get to 3.2 miles from the TH. Something made it all the way (see pic of parking area), but it didn't take the normal road, it had no fresh tracks on it.

The trench is back in until next storm, I was in snowshoes until well past tree line. From there I didn't use any traction. After summitting Shavano and Tabs, I took the bypass below Shavano. Big mistake, initially I could rock skip, but it turned into the biggest mess of postholing and trap door snow ever. Should have just gone back over Shavano.
