We had a limited window to get out and catch some fresh air Sunday. We thought perhaps the trails at Red Rock Canyon would be dry - at least more so than at other parks. It does get a lot of sun, we rationalized.
Well, we still had a great time, but under less-than-desirable conditions. Mud, mud, mud. And because it doesn't do the trails any good to widen them by avoiding the mud, we trudged on. Some areas were perfectly fine. Others. Well. Not so much.
Did you get out? Where? What are conditions? Where should I hike this afternoon if I can get outta here early?
(What happened to my trip to Monarch? A snafu here at work prevented me getting away. Sometimes the stars align in ways we can't imagine.)
