I woke up to find the snowmelt puddles frozen over. Apparently, it got below freezing last night.
A stiff breeze was blowing and no frogs could be heard. I’m not sure where they go when it gets really cold.
Progress was slow at first because any snow bank I needed to cross was hard and icy.
There were numerous snow banks that I had to contend with, but I did find time to photograph some flowers
Plants (Corn Lily)
Around noon I was only plodding along and my feet and legs were sore, so I found a flat shady area and took a short nap. I woke up in about an hour and everything felt fresh and ready to hike again. I’m going to have to remember this!
I found my nice campsite and slept well.
