Hiking Cedar Ln in 1 foot of snow. 2-20-13

Hiked my regular trail today for the first time after the blizzard. Still had about a foot or more of crusty snow on it and I am too heavy to walk on top. This was a real workout for my legs. Covered half the distance I normally do in one hour. Saw some coyote tracks in the snow.

Wow that was hard. 1 foot of crusted snow. 1 mile in 1 hr. half what I normally do.

Hiking Bear Hill Loop

Hiked bear hill loop today it was 2 1/2 miles. I was able to see Hubbard Lake from the trail. This is a nice hike and not too difficult. Anybody in good shape should have no problem doing this. This hike is best done around the end of June. Or the beginning of July when the Mountain Laurels are in full Blum. It’s beautiful and the smell is in the air. There are a few pictures below from this hike.
