Today was a great day for resting and that is what we did. We awoke to some clouds and snow at our camp at 7,800’ and decided to hunker down. Reviewing some knots and hitches filled the spaces between naps and we are raring to go tomorrow if the weather allows. It is snowing at present and with more snow in the forecast, we’ll just have to wait and see.

Looks like a nice piece of real estate if one has to be stuck for a day or two!The view looks pretty good…stay warm and safe.
