For those new to my blog, my family has a goal of climbing a mountain every summer. We’ve done eight so far. They’ve ranged from moderate to difficult, but not too difficult as my youngest is only eight. For the most part they’ve taken us at least three hours to do, sometimes longer depending on the complaining.
This summer we have procrastinated our climb, which we have also done in the past, but this year the weather has not cooperated.
We went out to the mountains on Monday to our designated mountain to find the top covered in snow, so we went to plan B and discovered snow at the trail head, so we went to our plan C.
Mesa Butte is a mountain, albeit a small mountain.
It only took us an hour to go up and back and was more like climbing up a large hill.
We’ll try to do another mountain if the weather warms up, but so far it’s not looking good. So in order to keep the tradition alive, we’re counting this mountain and really it still had a great view.
Sometimes going to Plan C isn’t so bad.
