4 days ago this was all covered in snow, but with snow last week followed by days of rain we now have a lakeside view!
We have more rain in the forecast so I imagine this will get more water this week. We’re about 15 ft above this so hopefully we’ll be alright.
There has been some flooding around the valley already. Fingers crossed it doesn’t get really bad. The county has sandbag stations set up across the valley for anyone who wants to get sandbags. The only requirement…bring your own shovel.
The view from my backyard all week has been cloudy with some rain. In between He-Man and I have gone out hiking twice each time on a new trail. If you follow me on Instagram you’ve seen some images of the trail there.
Our hike on Monday was a 5.3-mile loop that wiped me out. In Silicon Valley, I lived 257 ft above sea level. Here I’m 4,750 ft above sea level and the hike took us up to nearly 6,000 feet. I was huffing and puffing and light-headed for most of it. I am out of shape and not used to this elevation yet. A sinus infection and plugged ears didn’t help, but I hope this summer’s hikes get me ready for snow-shoeing this winter!
The weather may be unsettled here this week, but we are settled and on the road to discovering new trails and sights. I hope you’re feeling settled in and finding some time to enjoy the outdoors this week.
