Quiet before the storm....

In between 'Public Health' and 'Anatomy', Doug had a weekend off so we headed to Santa Fe (surprise?). We 'borrowed' a friend's dog, Wiley, and headed up SF Baldy. It rained, it hailed,... and in the midst of the hike Wiley decided to create some of his own fun and rolled around in the biggest piece of cow poop you've ever seen; fresh, moist, incredibly stinky and an interesting accessory to Wiley's lovely long hair... Luckily there was snow so we (the royal 'we', meaning Doug) used it to clean him off enough until we made it to the creek below where he received an improvised shower.

All clean!... Well, more or less...

There are no pictures of gorgeous vistas as the we were up in the clouds and could barely see a few feet in front of us. The moisture did bring out 100's of mushrooms though and there were still plenty of lovely flowers to be enjoyed. These were my favorites:

We met up with Hans, Josh and Barb and Art over the rest of the weekend and despite the weather challenges, it was great!
