I Confess … I was wrong!
yes, you heard me right … I wasn’t correct. Last week when I bragged about
checking off a trail on my summer hiking list … well … where I thought I was hiking was so far from where I was
actually hiking that I can’t say I actually hiked the trail I wanted to hike. After swallowing my indignation at google
earth’s maps I took out Sweetie’s old falling apart paper Payette National Forest recreation map (yes, actual
paper!) and with his help located all of the trails I want to hike this summer on the Council Ranger District. On
some of them I may need to hire a Sherpa.
Saturday Sweetie, Mala and I climbed in the truck and headed out to the Deseret Cabin Trailhead to hike the trail I
thought I was hiking last week. I truly wanted to check off a hike from my list. (I get a little focused like that). Well …
no hike was completed … there was still deep snow on the road and snow actually started falling from the sky
(envision a large smile here … ) which changed our minds (dang, I didn’t think to pack the snowshoes). The upper mountain hikes will have to wait until …
maybe … June?
So … my hiking trails completed 2015 list is still empty. but I loved the fabulous free range hike anyway! … the PAF trails list website continues to leave much
to be desired … like actual directions to the trails for paperless people like me. I’m thinking (again) that my gift to them next winter may be a trail list with the
lat/long and directions to find the trails … maybe I’ll pirate the trail page code and update for them. I think I remember how to code …
