L-man and I had planned a short backpacking trip for this last weekend, but due to rain, we decided to do a hike instead up to blue lake. The hot air balloon was flying almost directly over our house as we were packing the car. That's one thing I'd like to do, take a hot air balloon ride, wouldn't you?
I'll spare you all the gory details of losing the trail due to snow cover, having to bushwhack, crossing snow fields, post-holing through the snow into the stream beneath and giving up hope of finding the lake only to find it AND discovering we were WAY above it and able to see Hang Lake as well. It was a very good day indeed!
I hope your week is bright!
