I recently realized that of all my years of hiking into Blodgett Canyon in all seasons with various types of weather, (including a backpack trip and an off-trail side trek to the horsehead arch), that I don't have any posts of Blodgett on my blog yet. That's crazy!!
I have so many mountain adventures that I've never gotten around to sorting pics for and posting, but will hopefully eventually get caught up. Anyway, for now, this winter hike from about a year ago will give you a glimpse into Blodgett Canyon. :)
It hasn't always been the case in past winters.
The farther in you go, the deeper it gets. Plenty of snow fun! ;)
It definitely pays to not be just a fair-weather hiker anymore. :)
We were expecting snowy weather and are prepared, so we carry on. :)
Views obscured by the snow.
allowing for an easy crossing of the creek as the trail crosses to the other side.
(I tucked my camera safely away for a bit),
the storm passed over and turned into a partial blue-sky day.
The weather can definitely change very quickly "out here". :)
From the bottom of the canyon, these look like the top of the ridge,
but when you see them from above at Blodgett Overlook,
you realize they are only about halfway up!
Hope you enjoyed the pics ... keep your eyes out for more to come. :)
