Rain,! Rain! Rain!
Rita and Scott showed up on a rainy Saturday to join Sandy and I on the Rabbit Ears hike.
We drove the 40 miles to the Trout Creek trailhead.
We climbed 1,000 ft. and 3.2 miles through a light to medium rain to Rooster Rock.
Despite rain gear we were all fairly wet.
I made the decision not to continue to Rabbit Ears and the exposed ridge next to it.
We ate a hurried lunch squeezed into a dry cleft in Rooster Rock.
The return hike was swift, as we all looked forward to the dry car.
Hikers were all Obsidians: Rita Johnson, Scott Hovis and Sandy & Chuck Reul (leader).
