Chrissy and Alan made it up with the llamas for the first trip of the season. We had to pack yesterday to make up for the days we missed due to snow and ice. The llamas will try and keep their schedule of Monday, Wednesday, and Friday as long as the weather is permitting. Chrissy and Alan are planning on doing a back to back trip with another trip today. We have enough llamas for two teams. Today's team will consist of seven different llamas. Our wranglers have been buying new llamas over the winter and are anxious to get them trained and ready for the trail. We hope to have enough llamas for three full teams.
Yesterday turned out to be a mix of a beautiful day which turned to cloud coverage with snow flurries by sunset. We did not get more then a few flurries, thank goodeness. The low last night was 16º with a high of 36º. This combination makes for a slick mess around camp. If you are hiking today, please be take your time and be careful out there.
