Snow-Packed Trails and Sunshine!
We had a great time with Gracy on the South Mesa, Skunk Canyon and Kohler Mesa Trails, today. Conditions were variable: packed snow in the shade and mud in the sunshine. It was fun to put on our boot spikes and negotiate the challenging, icy sections in the shade, then slop around in the mud once we entered a sunny section. Gracy had no trouble, of course. It helps having claws! We all enjoyed the sunshine and had a terrific 6-mile hike.
