Friday, 03/12/10 Green Mountain

Enjoyed a casual hike with Allison and Sierra today up Green. Conditions were excellent with Gregory Canyon being mostly dry, no traction needed and the upper half above the cottage being perfectly packed snow. It was sunny and warmer than usual, regular shorts wearing is getting close. I wore convertable hiking pants just in case I wanted to opt for shorts, but it never really got THAT warm.

On the way down we had a minor confrontation with some foreign tourists who let us know they are afraid of dogs. We stated that Sierra is friendly and just wanted to get past (as did we). One of the girls screamed in terror as Sierra scooted past and we were treated to a barrage of bilingual foul language as we passed. If you are afraid of dogs, hiking an off leash trail in Boulder might not be the best place to go? Go figure.
