Ready or not.....

It looks like summer is here. The last few days the temps have been in the 80’s and climbing higher every day. Didn’t quite make 90 today, but it came close.

I took time off from chores today and took Sis and the dogs out to play. It was already hot by the time I rode away from the truck and trailer, so I kept the ride short and didn’t stray to far from water.

The creeks are running high and swift from melting snow in the high country.

Shackleford Creek 2

You can’t see much of the falls through the trees, but it is running nothing but white water.

Almost back to the truck, and we passed an irrigation pond where the dogs could water up and cool off.

I was in town a few days ago and stopped at the Forest Service office to inquire about road and trail conditions. No roads have been graded yet, but the 2 trail heads closest to me are at least accessible. No trail crews have been out. As usual the FS is crying about lack of funds, and I was informed that there my not be any trail crews this year. Be prepared to clear trail yourself in the National Forest.

We've had a very wet spring Casey. Everything is green. Most of the high country is still snowed in.

Hi Momlady. A dip in that water would cool you off for sure. It's coming right off the snow.

I'd say so John. Everyone around here has had enough of the wet stuff for awhile.
