A New Record

Another morning, another threat of rain
Dr. K, Becca and I set a hiking record that we won't soon break:  four consecutive treks on the Grand View Trail in the High Rolls/Mountain Park area of the Sacramento Mountains in the Lincoln National Forest.  Rainy weather conditions more or less kept us from venturing higher into the mountains; there's nothing quite as aggravating as trekking along muddy trails when you don't feel like dealing with the consequences.  Despite four hikes on the same trail we had a good time in the high country, and we already can't wait to get back up there again.
There were breaks in the clouds, though
