Hiking up the ridge

On Tuesday, while the weather was still nice, I hiked up the ridge behind my cabin—the same ridge where, about six weeks ago, I had my snowshoeing debacle, where I made it up the ridge fine, but slipped and bounced most of the way down on the slick ice sheet under the snow.

All the snow was gone from the "trail" (then).

 Looks like someone left a broken trekking pole at the base of that tree.

 Still climbing.

The decommissioned Forest Service road still had a little snow where the sun couldn't get to it.

 Views from up the ridge.

On the return trip, I retrieved my broken pole.

  1. Some people and their irresponsible trekking pole disposal wonder the planet's in trouble.
