Out To Willow Creek

With the disappointment from yesterday in regards to Hatcher Pass not being open yet, I thought I’d head up to Willow then Willow-Fishhook towards Hatcher Pass, in hopes that they may have opened it today, a weekend. Nope again, not open, though the drive from the Willow end of Fishhook is very rewarding all on it’s own. We went as far as the closed gate, then turned left up Willow Creek Valley. Was a great sunny day for the most part, but while up in Willow Creek, the clouds rolled in and you could that there was rain coming. At that point we headed back.
