hilarious costumes.... i so wish you had met up with ANYONE, human or animal, on the trek, just to read about their facial expressions.


hiking in fall is usually quite awesome. covid takes its toll for sure, esp with the breathing. guessing your trip mates would have hauled you out? :)


check that route off your bucket list. great photos, too. good colors.

Haha. At least we had the pleasure of trick or treating the other two years. The first year, it was sunrise and we were putting costumes on joking that we wouldn't see anyone because who goes to the PowWow in the snow? That was right about the time the grouse hunters pulled in the lot to a ghost and a pumpkin getting ready to go. Then we ran into a couple camping in the trail. It turned out to be Martin Kubik who provided incredible trail information. On the sioux hustler, we ran into a couple mid trail hiking the opposite direction. As of yet though, no one has had candy for us! Haha
