Today, we started off pretty good – and then the weather changed. As we drove to McBride with the dogs to their new puppy care and spa facility, we watched the wind rise up and the storm clouds roll in. It is pouring buckets – no, not buckets, vats and barrels – we are in a waterfall.
Maybe I exaggerate a tad – but still.
The question now is, what to do about Mount Robson. This may well change our plans. We’re both fine for hiking and backpacking in inclement weather, but to leave on a major hike in absolute horribleness – I don’t think either one of us is game for that. We have decided to call it at 6.30 a.m. when we wake up. In the meantime, we’ll get our packs ready and prepare to go.
I suggested Plan B – hike Verdant Pass on Tuesday when the weather is once again supposed to be beautiful. Then, the next day, pack up and head to Nelson.
In the meantime, here we are in our little home, cozy as can be. The furnace is running and we have electricity, Internet and hot water. Simon is going to make omelets for dinner.
