fall hiking take two

snow! not in town, but in the mountains. i went on a hike with some friends on friday afternoon after work. we hit snow early on in to the hike and then i started actually snowing. we were hoping to summit a mountain but had to stop short 2.5 miles in at an alpine lake. still a beautiful and wonderful hike, just a lot colder and whiter than we expected!

a happy hiker, though mixed feelings about snow

and happy friends, april and michelle.

wolverine cabin. an old lookout/forest service cabin. i kind of want to move in.

celebrating the snow and lake view with coffee!

it was a wonderfully chilly afternoon!
