The difference a day makes!

When we awoke this morning we were greeted to snow and howling wind.. it sure was cold compared with yesterday when we were treated to temperatures breaking 50 degrees and sunshine and blue sky!

We made the most of yesterday’s weather by hiking Dadd Gulch, a trail which begins just 2 miles down the road.   We have passed it numerous times on our way to other trails, but we discovered that this is our newest favorite!   The fact that local friends joined us made the experience all the nicer…  and their dog had a blast!

I guess this is why it is a gulch!    some pretty steep sided sections of the trail…

headed back down , after hiking 3 miles in…   just a bit short of our goal, but we were quite satisfied with the experience and will revisit the trail again in a few weeks…

at the end of the day, we were treated to a beautiful sunset…  with just over a month to go before we leave this spot,  we have a lot to pack in…    stay tuned!     jt      cp23_1983@yahoo.com

    Sounds like you are planning on being back in the northeast around May 1st?

      You hit that nail right on the head 🙂 we will stop to see my kids and our new grandson on the weekend of the 28th of april, and then head over to the campground 🙂 we understand that the weather has been somewhat strange in the northeast this winter.. same for PA.. hoping for a warm, sunny summer season at the campground – with just enough rain to keep the dust down! looking forward to catching up with you guys…
