Bill and I went and hiked Carson pass today. Jim had recommended this hike to us and then he had to go in to work:(
We were out there for over 3 hours. Somewhere along the hike we got off the trail....BIG NO NO....hehe....Of course my husband knew where he was going (or so he thought). A storm moved in and I kind of lost my bearings as you couldn't really see the mountain tops anymore and we got out of the trees into the open and everything started looking the same to me. I had a moment where I got a little scared. We thought we could see the road and once we approched the area realized that we were only seeing ski tracks. That is when we decided to pull out the compass (THANK YOU KIRBY AND MARY!!!). It had just crossed my mind that I might be spending my anniversary lost in the backcountry or even worse that I might have to share my last cliff bar with my husband. (who did infact know where he was going and yes I did say sorry for doubting him...)
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
