The trail/road was littered with windfallen trees, but we saw lots of wildflowers and it was quiet. That's an important thing for both of us...quietude on the trail. We did a modified reverse and covered nearly three and a half miles. The altitude gain is seven hundred feet plus the ups and downs of the trail itself. The high point is just a skosh under seven thousand feet. It's a steady climb in several places and a great workout. We finished just shortly before noon.
Back at the house, we had lunch and settled in waiting for the storm
It's pouring rain as I write this. Good for the woods and grasslands and it surely keeps the fire danger in check. I didn't hear too much thunder, so that's a good thing.
We have had an interesting and exciting day so far. Just when I was lamenting to our daughter, Lisa, about the lack of moose this year, the big surprise shows up. It's all good...
