So at church on Sunday Lydia listened to the speaker talk about his hike on Mt. Adams and said "I want to do that" so she involved the whole family. Kipp flew out from South Carolina, and we headed for the mountain. Bracan's brother-in-law came with us also. The snow level was so low that it was 2 miles just to the trail head, then another 3 -4 miles to lunch counter, our base camp. We were rained on the entire day, thus soaked, just pass the tree line we had lightening not good when you have metal snowshoes, ski poles, and ice picks in your backpack. So we headed down for cover. Blizzard during the night, leaving 4 inches of snow. No reason to head up cuz you won't see anything anyway. All were sad, Aaron and Kipp decided to have some fun anyway and went sledding in the morning on their sleeping pads. It was a miserable/good time. Pictures coming later.
