Fish Creek/Split Mtn 12/26/2016
Made it thru Split Mtn.
It is too muddy and slick to continue in cars.
So we are walking 2.5 miles to our original trailhead.
Still wet from recent rains.
Beth is looking for new undiscovered dinosaurs.
All we find is gypsum.
Getting into a canyon.
Is this the end for us?
Wayne is testing it. May be doable but not with wet muddy shoes.
Ridge way up.
This is our high point.
Does this signify something? Absolutely nothing.
On high plateau.
Back in the canyon. That is a swimming hole!
Are we only two in this canyon?
On we go.
We are all together for lunch.
Starting back down.
John is holding that rock up.
Looks like a bottom of the ocean here.
Made it out to the road before sunset. On a way back we got into traffic jams created by people looking for snow.
