My back has been feeling so much better that I decided to risk going on a hike this weekend. It was fine! I'm so relieved.
Dad, Shelley, Marlin, the girls and I headed out to Forum Lake for a quick hike. We were a little surprised to find snow (I guess we should have read the trail report!) but the lake was mainly open with ice chunks floating in it. We saw lots of flowers while driving to the trail head but not many on the actual trail. We also spotted a momma bear and her tiny baby (about Lacey's size) on the side of the road. I didn't get a photo though as it probably wouldn't have been a good idea to stop.
