Joe through out a couple this week to choose from. The first had us in potential snow and much colder temps. I would never have been able to put up with the whining on that one.

The Plan A that got the nod, received 1.2 inches of rain yesterday. What normally runs at 1.5 CFM, was running at 20 CFM yesterday afternoon, and flashed at 7,000 CFM at midnight at 10' in height. When we pulled in, you could hear the roar of Sycamore Creek.

This was a plan B.
I'd never hiked out of the Ballantine TH, so with the help of a freshly downloaded route into Route Scout, we were off.

Pine Creek was roaring, as were all the other normally dry named and non-named washes. We started in a light rain in the comfortable 40's. We were in the clouds at about 4000' and it got noticeably colder. We hit a low of 36.9, with a cooling breeze.

We look a break at the cabin for a bit so Joe could change socks before heading back.

Almost back to the Truck we ran into Chums, just starting his hike.

This one was better than I expected.
Felt strange to be home so early on a Saturday, so I took a nap.
