A hot time was had for all on Dickey-Welsh

We took a whole crew up and over mts. Dickey Welsh Sunday, and a hot, hot, hot time was had by all. With temps hovering, unbelievably in the 70s, and high humidity, it felt more like a July day in the mountains. And the gnats were out in force as well. This was the first time we can recall putting on bug dope this early in the season.
Still, a fine hike, with wonderful friends. The 4.5 loop was mostly dry and only a little mud was to be found near the start. The crowds were out in force today, enjoying the heat, and we saw dozens of dogs, including one of our crew, Ruby, who is training to tackle the 4,000 footers. Views were enormous despite the haze.
A calm easy weekend for M and D. May has arrived, which means 5 months till Nepal. Big, big hikes in store soon!
Here’s a couple pics of the hike. The rest can be found at our digital library, here: http://danandmeenakshi.phanfare.com/4659944#imageID=98856860

    Those ledges look like alot of fun with some great views and that bright orange salamander-frogy thingy is wicked cool, it almost looks like it's fake!


  2. Hi Chris!
    Yeah, Welsh Dickey may be a beginner hike, but it has some wonderful ledges and rock scrambles. Fun day despite the heat!
    And it's nice when we find creatures that aren't black flies, ticks or mosquitoes 🙂

  3. Thanks Dan! I noticed your link goes to Chelston Direct. Looks interesting. Is that your company?
