Butter again

It was another perfect day of hiking up Butter – this time with Sheila and both dogs. The best news is that Sheila hiked 6.5 hours and more than 800 metres elevation – and she was fine!!!

Yay!

Bigger hikes to come.

The other awesome news is pure serendipity. We had nice weather – sunshine and warmth for lunch – T-shirt weather – so much so that we were extremely grateful for a cool breeze on the flat, sunny section coming down. Five minutes after I got home it started to rain. Perfect!

Another piece of serendipity: In the photo below you can see the beautiful honey bee that landed on the flower at the exact moment I took the picture.

Love it!

And after agonizing for a full day, I have finally settled my choices about where to hike on Sunday. The option was Brennan or Grohman. And, although there are good reasons to do Brennan, mainly that going up in snow will likely be easier than later – and coming down will be fast, the group going is likely to be very fast – fast enough that I won’t have a chance to take photos. For me, that takes away a good deal of the fun.

I trust Chris and I think I’ll really enjoy Grohman. Snow? Sure – but I think it will be a great day. I’ll save Brennan for just a wee bit later – maybe three weeks from now. I do want snow near the top – on Whitewater as well. It makes it so much easier to get up and down.

Hiking season is in full swing.
