The forecast was calling for rain but the weather was looking otherwise so I took my friends to the top of Mount Hayes to see some spectacular views.
(These are nice when look at them bigger by clicking, especially if you can click on it again in flickr and see it even bigger with the black background.)
We drove most of the way to the top and hiked the rest.
Half the sky was blue sky and puffy white clouds but the moody, grey half was slowly overtaking. Rain turned to snow this high up on the mountain and we enjoyed the light flurries a great deal.
There was a lot of play in the snow along the way, even for Kep. I’m impressed that my new deeg ran the whole way to the top and still had energy to bound through the deep snow banks.

It’s fun to have visits with friends! It was a year ago when I was eating lunch with Paxye in this same lookout spot at the top of Mount Hayes.
