My Actifit Report Card: November 9 2021
I really didn’t think the Mrs wanted to hike today!🤔
When you see leaves flying past you sideways like you are in a sci-fi movie, the wind is howling!😳
Liz wanted hiking today, and our friend Jan joined us as well!
The rain was just starting, well at least today was mostly wind!
After we hiked past the off-grid cabin, we passed the first “Widow Maker” tree!
We stopped ……..
One at a time we would hurry past this very dangerous tree, that has been hanging at 45 degree for the last year plus.
It was moving in the high wind……….😮
It will come down, we just want to be sure no one is in its path when it does!
After climbing to the top of the High Trail, Liz said that was as far as she was going today.
Jan and Liz turned around…..
I told them to be extra careful, and I hiked onward.
I followed our trail to South Pass ridge line, and hiked this very familiar foot path along the top of the ridge.
I found one larger tree down, it was totally blocking the trail!
I slowly picked my way through the many branches of this tree…….in the high wind!
By now a blowing cold rain had started, and the Sun was starting to set!
Definitely time to shorten this hike Silvertop!😮
By the time I made it back down to our road, I could see sheets of rain, still blowing sideways!😅
It was so nice to walk in the door to see Liz, and a toasty warm fire burning!🥰
That’s definitely a wrap for today………
Till tomorrow Silvertop Mike 😊
