First hike of the season

We had a quick thaw and actually made it out hiking this week. It was a short one while I was between assignments for the paper, so we only had about 45 minutes to go.

Grabbed our packs, laced up our hiking boots, leashed up the dog and off we went. The trail was muddy in places, then we hit the snow and ice patches. That was fun. There were some beautiful ice formations hanging along the trail. Nothing like at the train tunnel we go to, but still pretty.

I miss being out there! Hopefully, now that spring is here, we'll be able to get out every day.

Where I live we have lots of rock outcroppings so we often get ice falls of different compexity forming. They are always interesting to see. Occasionally you can get in behind in a sort of ice cave which gives you and altogether different perspective.
