Very Good Friday

The Good Friday forecast called for sun and with mid day temperatures of 10 degrees celsius. I was surprised to arrive at the Cascade/Porter trailhead at 10am to find only two vehicles. OK, one of those vehicles must have been a clown car as the sign in book indicated a group of 13 post-hole-ing teenagers (C'mon people, winter hiking is done on snowshoes). The melt hadn't quite started yet so there were only a few icy sections on the trail. A single layer of fleece was all that was required for the entire hike. It really doesn't get much better than this. A windbreaker was required above treeline on Cascade due to healthy wind gusts. I had a nice chat with a retiree from Montreal and then spent the usual half hour taking photos and enjoying the blue skies. Likewise on Porter.

A very good day indeed!
