Blodget Day

Last Sunday Jeff and I thought it could be fun to climb Shoshone in Blodget canyon. It's been cold out, but the ice hasn't fully formed yet. Rather than sit around on our butts, we figure we ought to go rock climbing.

The temps actually turned out to be quite pleasant. A slight breeze forced us to keep jackets on, but for the most part, we were warm.

It was nice to be climbing with Jeff again. We hadn't climbed together in a long time and even though Shoshone isn't a challenge, it was still a fun adventure in winter conditions.

We finished the climb with plenty of day light remaining and slowly made our way back to the trail. Snow covered rock made travel kind of tricky, but we managed to reach the car just at sunset.
