#18 Hike thru Mt. Laguna once again in the Snow

in Haveyoubeenhere9 days ago (edited)

Good morning Hive Family, another day in the books and a new one incoming. Today I present you with my eighteenth hiking post and was from the 5th of January, a seven mile hike. Once again I took my Niece and Nephew up to Mt. Laguna for a big hike and trail. I have been wanting to try and make it to Lake Laguna and get some shot's of the Lake and snow but it proved to be to difficult and got way to late, so we had to turn back. This will be post one of two, we plan to go again today, leaving in an hour, now this time it will be less snow and ice, as well as we will be getting their way earlier than last week. Now that I am getting some more experience in snow hikes, I have found some do's and dont's. We really went late and honestly they wanted to go another thirty minutes out and get there, but I said no we are turning back. These young-ins don't get it sometimes, so they were a little Butt hurt but by the time we got to the truck, they knew I lead them in the right direction.

Another lesson learned on this trip, was go the same way back when it starts to get cold and dark, we chose another route back and I was very angry at myself for choosing to do it. I was very tired, I am an old fart and these kids have way more energy than me, not to mention better knee's. The snow is very difficult for me, especially doing seven miles in snow and ice. The good thing is learning lesson's and learning these trails, so that way if I bring out others, I know the best option for us all to get back safely, I don't want to be the one, especially in the cold and snow, to get us in a survival situation, my Nephew was pretty butt hurt about not making it but like I said he realized why at the end. Also he did do good too, he helped us make right decisions, he saw a marker that we didn't see, if we went the wrong way, it wouldn't of been good. So he did well on helping us get out and when we took that way, I knew where we were at and knew we made it out safely. It was still a long way after that but we did it as a team.

Anyways I don't have a lot of time to say more, with that said we are going again soon, so another post of today's exploration is coming. For now I leave you with all these images I captured on the last adventure and I hope I can come back next post with the lake shot's, so stay tuned and thank you for being here and checking in on my blog and life today.

Today's cover win has to be this shot, the end, when we left the mountain, the Sunset was so amazing and honesty we got their 10 minutes late from an epic shot. Nonetheless enjoy and have a blessed day.

I changed the cover photo, didn't like the way it looked.
