|Coop had a blast on a familiar hike. Explored top of the ski slope searching for snow; found snow for eating and rolling under some bushes behind the top of the trails. Lots of friendly pups out enjoying hikes on the hills. Couple of spots of flowing water on south skyline for drinking.
|Lost and Found:
|Nice short hike on these hills. Started walking up the road the the trail behind the ranger station. Trails was easy to follow, may have been re-blazed within the last few years. Earlier in the day, the rocks were wet and slick, but most of the trail was dry. The weather station was open for tours. We wandered around the summit to the back of the familiar ski hill. Good to see skiers enjoying the hill despite the lack of natural snow, very weird. Few spots of snow and ice along the trails, but had to look for it. Lots of people, families and pups out on the tails today, even in the more remote sections of trail.
