Sulphur Springs -- January 12, 2008

Back to back Sulphur Springs hikes! It's true! D had never been on the rollercoaster journey that is Sulphur Springs and since we were looking for a nice long hike that was a workout without being too strenuous, we thought we'd give this one a try.

The most amazing thing was for once most of the hike was calm -- little to no wind, beautiful weather. Even the lookout, which we usually *feel* before we see if you know what I mean, had barely a breeze, so I was able to compose a little nicer shot than usual:

Just like Diamond T a few weeks back, the upper part of the hike was surprisingly devoid of snow. As in really devoid:

Which was in stark contrast to what the surroundings looked like at the beginning of the loop:

Lots of snowfall since then! Can't wait to see what the area looks like now...
