Pilot Rock Road to Porcupine Mountain 11-21-16

Photos by Dan, Denise, Katherine and Keeley

We started our hike with a bit of trepidation because it was snowing and blowing and 30 degrees.  However, after overcoming a desire to go back to Callahan’s for breakfast, we took off into the storm. 

After entering the forest, the wind stopped and there were sightings of blue sky from time to time.  The hike turned out to be a spectacular winter scene with snow on all the trees and only 1 to 4 inches of snow on the trail.  As we approached the top of Porcupine Mountain, the sun came out for a wonderful lunch, surrounded by lots of snow covered trees and views for miles to Soda Mountain and the nearby valleys.

Refreshments were taken at Callahan’s, which seemed to have much improved service even though the staff was busy preparing for a big day tomorrow when they have 770 reservations for their Thanksgiving Dinner.

I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.
