Well, we finally did it - we got our August day of skiing in! It was kind of a late day, last minute decision, considering it was the 31st and all. The weather was cool and breezy - which was perfect for hiking with skis and boots hanging off your back. Thunderstorms settled in on us after our second jaunt down the patch of snow, so we kind of hustled out of there. It was a fun day, and, yes, the skiing was worth the hike. (By the way, I love this hike, and getting to ski is always worth it!)
Rosie went crazy for the snow! She was definitely impressed that our hiking destination turned out to be a patch of snow. It was by far her favorite day of August.
