Red Echo

February 3, 2007

I went out to the Cedar River Watershed area today for a restoration project, but when I got there the gate was locked and there was nobody in sight. I neglected to bring the coordinator’s phone number, so I just wandered around the different parking lots, trying to find the group, but had no luck.

Oh, well. Since I was there, I decided to go say hello to Rattlesnake Ledge. The trail was as busy as ever, but still had that rough-edged, early-season feeling.

The rain started to fall on the drive home. Yes! I’ve been waiting impatiently through all these clear, warm blue days, looking forward to the next round of grey skies that mean “fresh snow in the mountains”. There will be plenty of time to play in the sun this summer – right now I want to ski.

  1. You need to head up here and ski
    Lots of snow and they’ve been getting fresh stuff frequently

    One of my all time favorites is a place called Ferni.
    Bags of light fluffy snow and a nice little town.
