Made an early a.m. departure with Alex to visit the swingset before heading up to Rim Country. FR 201 was mud and ice with a few snow patched as expected. Still smooth sailing up to the 191 junction. We parked there and set out on foot. It was 27 degrees when we started but once the sun came up over the mountains, it warmed up nicely. We added some extra milage looking for a lost cell phone (in the snow) and backtracking a tad after missing that final turn before the mine. Easy to miss when covered in snow and hidden in manzanita. We checked out the old mine and accompanying rusted items briefly before hitting the swingset. Alex had a blast once I reassured her that it would hold up. The views on the hike in and from the swingset were even more amazing due to recent snowfall. We soaked it all in before heading back down. Sunshine had the snow melting rapidly but the old road is mostly rock and not very muddy. Beautiful day in the Mazzies.
