Cold evening and overcast. The sun came out while I was out the point. Saw a few tourists along the path.

First time hiking Shoshone with a bunch of snow on the trail. There were some footpaths so the snow was kind of trampled down. Some areas had about 10". Started at dusk, so rushed out there, running here and there. I can only tolerate jogging/running in extremely short distances (count yards, not miles). Went out to the point, stayed for a few minutes, then rushed back to warmth.

First little hike of 2015. Decided to try out the Ice Trekkers that my NPS friend gave me last year - I guess that's what they pass out to Rangers ... they were perfect for an easy walk like this where my Microspikes would have been overkill. Beautiful day, sunny, around 40 degrees. There was a huge, happy snowman along the road. And I followed some bobcat tracks right out to the point - guess kitty likes the view too!

I got to work at 7am today, and by the time we opened at 8, word was spreading that there was a total inversion layer in the Canyon.
Most of us at the store were excited, and took turns leaving individually or in small groups to go see and catch some photos. I left the store about 9am and went to Mather Point (my first visit there in the two and a half years I've lived here!).
I ran into a couple co-workers and some NPS people I know ... took some photos for tourists, and tried to convince others that they were lucky to witness this rare phenomenon - they just wanted a clear view of the Canyon.
After getting off work a little early, I walked out to Shoshone around 2pm and it was still pretty awesome.

Rode my cannondale from work to Yaki pt then hauled my faithful aluminum beast through the woods a bit until we met up with the new and improved mule trail.... No bikes allowed by the way...

So I hopped on my bike and pedaled like a wild woman until the turn around where I dragged her through the woods some more until reaching the point and the Ramadas.
Seeing the "shroom rock" was like visiting an old friend.

Crazy Italian guy said he was quitting smoking weed and offered me the last of his buds...I was like "uhhhhh" I denied and he threw it over the edge... Wow.

So after an hour of solitude after his departure I realized I didn't have a headlamp. Had 30 minutes before sunset and 6 miles to get back to the store...pffft cake.

Hit the final downhill at 32mph!! My eyes were tearing up and my hair might be permanently "feathered"

Awesome.

A quick hike during my lunch break. Sure is a nice change from going to crowded overlooks. I pretty much had the place to myself. Forgot my Trails Illustrated map. I've been endeavoring to learn all the place names: side canyons, temples, etc. No matter. Nice walk, nice views, great place for a lunch break between tours.

I was in a hurry, thought I might have another tour to lead, and realized after I started walking out there that I would not have time to complete even this short hike. Oh, well, next time. I guess I look pretty "official" because a Japanese couple asked me if there was a view out there, and a German couple asked me how far it was to the view.

Sometime soon I'll have time, maybe tomorrow. A fairly hot day, and very dry.

Quick walk up to the edge here for sunset. Its always nice to be here and not have to deal with the crowds... Treated to a nice sunset! and we spent most of the time there at the very end ...one memorable aspect was seeing about 20 condors rise from below canyon just as the day was drawing to a close! I don't think I have seen so many in such close proximity to me or to each other !

Gorgeous first day of the year - it's like Spring here! Saw six people and two dogs along the way, nobody out at the point. The road/trail in was about one third each ice, mud, and dry dirt.

Testing ankle with sporadic jogging. Always nice to get away from the crowds.

Dragged my ranger friend on this quick paced little jaunt, we were all too lazy to go IN the canyon so next best thing...


Followed the OLD rim trail along most of hermit road, it takes you down into a pretty "wild" ravine and the ponderosa pines smell yummy and sweet during and after rain!!

Fun lazy day, did some off trail to a few points, we grabbed margaritas in the village and made quick time out to SK, Yaki and Shoshone.

Saw a baby mountain lion or bobcat climbing a tree ... really wish I could tell which, but that would have required seeing the mother - which I was glad not to.
Also saw a jackrabbit, and the usual birds and squirrels. And a park ranger.
