-What trail is this?-

This is “Guess the Trail” with skiers in every picture. Can you figure out where they are? 

The previous game was fun, and I expected at least one picture to bedevil you, which it did. We’ve started a new game, but you can still go back and agonize over #8. 

Posted below are the photos numbered, 1 – 14. Leave your answer in the comments. Click on the photos for a larger image. Good luck!!

Yes, it’s the Cascade Valley bridge at the north end. The campground is on the left, Cacade Valley trail straight ahead. -Bob

#4: WBC, exciting telephone loop (CCW) where it intersects with moose loop? Well, it is the junction of two trails but not those two.

#7: moraine lake Rd Correct! …and like the skier in the photo, hopefully we’ll be gliding down the hill on good tracksetting in another month.
