Write Up:
Despite a weather forecast indicating there would be a very light shower around 9:00 am and a bit more rain in the pm, there was a light mist to drizzle the whole day. This did not deter the five hikers from trudging through a creek, starting the morning off with wet feet, and then another creek, reinforcing the wetness. The trip toward the ridges that form the Horseshoe traversed through wet meadows, and, up and down old logging roads until we were in the open and began our ascent up the first ridge. We crossed grassy ridges till we came to a more rocky one. The valleys were filled with mist, making the view quite ethereal. We chose to cross lower on the ridge as the wetness made the rocky trail quite slippery. At the end of this ridge, we lost our bearings, being unable to see our destination because it was obscured by mist. We decided to return to our starting point, rather than continuing the loop. We arrived back at our vehicles soaked, but very impressed that we had enjoyed the hike. We all stated we would like to try to complete the whole loop next year, and hopefully in drier weather.
