    I was very surprised to get to the trailhead this morning and find three of our members ready to hike this trail. And I am proud to say that you all did a great job. When the rain came down and the snow began to blow you kept on climbing. Who would have thought. Well ok I guess everyone else knew we were crazy but it sure was fun!

      It looks like a wet hike. Still planning on going but will wear rain gear

    I have to work in the afternoon, so I'll have a turn around time of 11:00. Intermountain now has a "one minute late and you are tardy" policy, so I have to pay more attention to the time clock now. Hopefully we'll make the cabin by then. I haven't been to Holmes cabin yet & have been wanting to check it out. I'm fine to turn around by myself. Thanks for hosting this, Will!
