C'mon Sparky! You can't tease us like that and not explain!

Ha! I shouldn't have said anything. Someone was going #2 in a most vile and disgusting way right off the trail. People, man.....People.

I skate several times a week, and I think two things: that was cool and I hope nobody else does that. :lol:

It's fun and cool to see it, just like that, but wouldn't be so funny to find 'thane lines and grind marks on rocks up there. A man could start thinking about making kindling in a situation like that... :unibrow:

The Velma Lakes trail from Bayview Trailhead. Cascade Lake in distance as they went down the use trail. Looks like were at Snow Lake.

I personally don't care if backcountry visitors play around on skateboards atop open granite slab bedrock areas in remote offtrail areas. Someone would likely complain however that is just a slippery slope away from allowing mountain bikers many of whom already would like to be able to ride on wilderness trails. The consensus of the more numerous backpackers and hikers would never go for that.

During the peak of the 60s surfing craze I lived a year in San Diego and all we teenagers had self built skateboards of that era. So understand the fun. I also am a long time snow skier so like such sliding sports and would be a surfer too if water wasn't so cold off our Northern California coast. For decades have thought about how it might be fun to skateboard down some of the wilderness bedrock slab areas. Big Lake's basin in Emigrant comes to mind. There are in any case areas where one can do this in non-wilderness national forest if one inspects topos. One excellent area is just downstream of Florence Lake reservoir.
