So, I had a chance to get out with the dogs today. What a wonderful spring day it was, we hit 56 F here at the house, but I swear it was warmer then that. Maybe it was the hiking, the Alaskan sun, I don’t know, but it was damn warm. One of those days I wished I would have brought a camp chair with me, just to soak up the sun.
Anyway, the day couldn’t be much better, only if Jan could have been with me and the dogs. Now That would have made the day perfect.
I knew the weather was going to be good today, so I thought I would hike up the Broderbund Butte, from the east side, the side I have never climbed before, nor have I been up here in the winter. Muddy and Icy, those are the words for the first third of the climb. The rest of the climb was just fine, some bits of mud, but really mostly OK. Once up at the top the views were wonderful.
After spending some time on The Butte, we headed for a little hike in the woods near McRoberts Creek, near Jim Lake. Only spent a little over an hour in the woods, I needed to go grocery shopping yet and get home.
All in all, it was a really nice day out, and a much needed day out.
On to da photos.
