Don’t Like the Weather?

HikeDark

At long last, back in Dubois.

This is the moment we have waited for! The dog and I set off west up the highway towards the Sheridan Creek area, just inside the Shoshone National Forest. Here is the alpine high-mountain forest region of the local ecosystem. A few minutes back down the highway, we could be clambering around in red-rock badlands. That’s for another day …

Today we’ll do an easy hike, just up the main road. Mustn’t push myself, only one day after I have returned to 7.500 feet above sea level.

Oh, no! What’s that heading in from the southwest? Ominous; there’s thunder.

Drat! We turn back towards the car.

Partway back, I turn around. What’s this?

  1. I grew up in Dubois in the ’80s and early ’90s. I love your blog, it brought back a lot of memories, many of which I had forgotten about. Lol, some things never change! It was a great read. I’m saving the link so I can read it again. Thank you
