Thompson Point 5124 via Granite Creek Road-Trail

Ian and I parked at the Mailbox Peak trailhead and rode our mountain bikes up the North Fork Road onto the gated Granite Creek Road-Trail. We ditched the bikes shortly before we got to the Granite Lakes intersection (where the picnic tables are), after this the road was consistently covered with snow. At the start of the Thompson Lake trail (#1009A) was the first particularly scenic spot on this trip, we took a break for lunch here. We continued on the logging roads past the trail and up to Thompson Point 5124. There was an excellent view of Kaleetan Peak where the logging road meets the ridge just south of Thompson Point 5124. At this point I slogged up the snowy, logged-out south side of Thompson Point 5124 while Ian waited below.
