Snow!!

I have been participating in many Fitbit Challenges lately (add me here if you'd like!) So I took a hike a few weeks ago to get in some steps... Much to my surprise, I came across some snow. It had rained a few days before, and if it is cold enough that rain is snow in the mountains. It doesn't happen too often in the mountains on our side of town, so I wasn't expecting it. Of course it was a VERY small amount of snow, but very exciting to me!

I stared on my hike early in the morning and I hadn't seen ANYONE on the trail. I was going to shoot for the peak. But being alone and not seeing any other hikers around, I decided to turn back..... and I saw several groups on the way back... wish I would have kept going. NEXT TIME!

  2. Great photos. And as for cutting short the hike, better safe, than sorry.
