Time to get out the shorts and sandals, well not quite. It was a blazing 52 degrees yesterday. Of course, there is still 14" of snow on the ground and the low did get down to 27. I think I will stick to my pants and snow boots. Looks as though we have some shoveling to do around the llama troughs. We are hoping to get a pack trip in on Monday. The weather sounds as though it is going to be beautiful and warm, or warmer. Chris and I hiked up Alum yesterday. The trail was much better then it was on Monday. Be prepared to get your feet wet. The run off was crazy. We used our stabelicers from the last log bridge to the top. It was slushy and slippery. I have not heard about any other trails. I will try and get some updates today. For now, I would go with the information that Nathan was giving.
