Nine of us came out to hike the north section of Saunders Lake. After the week of hot weather and especially since the smoke had been drifting in from the BC wildfires, we were looking forward to hiking in cooler temperatures…even though the forecast called for rain.
As you know, we’re not “fair-weather” hikers. A long as there’s no lightening or high winds, or continuous downpour—and we’re dressed for it—we don’t mind a little rain.
We were sitting on the hill across from that spot where an eagle-pair makes its nest, finishing our lunch, when the drizzle began. We put on our ponchos and rain gear and headed back…while enjoying the finest walk in the rain that anyone could have on a Sunday afternoon.
Thanks to Stella for leading the hike.
