Senior Hiking # 358 - Gold Hill
June 21, 2010…Gold Hill tr #3 and tr#2…
hike # 358 1st day of summer! HA!
Yes, once again, the weather forecast was for 100% rain…and the prediction came thru. So we picked one of our rainy day hikes...we have three or four…and chose Gold Hill. It is a steep climb and it is always hard to decide what to wear…you want to be protected from the wet and cold yet you know you will work up a sweat on the climb. I was glad I put the rain pants on at the trail head…the fast growing brush along the trail side was soaked with water and it did it’s best to get all over me!
Short report…long and very wet hike…for the first day of summer…where the heck is summer???
