Weekend weather forecast- RAIN- quel surprise? A couple of weekends ago, mother nature sent rain mixed with snow, and more rain. Mitch and I decided to give it a go playing outside anyways. Browsing the guidebook we picked a nice hike up to some lakes, trying to avoid slippery rock and navigate through muddy trails. This one was a winner- the best you can get with “extreme” weather conditions and rainfall warnings. One small oversight- checking trail closures. After driving through rain-snow-rain-snow, we arrived to our destination, anxious to try out clothing against mother nature’s perils. Took the turn off and ….. CLOSED! *sigh* Let’s pick something else. This cycle went on for a little while until we figured out that pretty much everything is closed and we missed the memo.
New plan of attack was to drive until something open caught our eye- which ended up being James Walker. We bummed around on the trail- navigating swamps of water sprinkled with snow and a few creek crossings. A pretty fun day despite the set-backs.
