We fell asleep to the soft pitter-patter of raindrops last night, and awoke to low clouds and wet roads. Today’s weather included drizzle, heavy rain, flash flood warnings, lightening and thunder – and a couple periods when the rain stopped, but never long enough for a hike. :(
Since we were indoors so much of the day, I found time to type up the recipe for German Potato Salad cooked in the crockpot, and I’ve added it to the “Recommended Recipes” archive on the left side of the blog (scroll down). Let me know if the link is not working; it looks like Google has changed a few things since the last time I created and published a document.
Yesterday’s weather was a mix of sun and storm, and we managed most of a fun hike before the storm broke. Here is the photographic story of the Cohab Canyon Trail. It starts in Capitol Reef National Park just across from the Fruita Campground.
With our raincoats on, we huddled in the shelter of a huge boulder until the first wave of rain passed, then made a hasty descent to the valley floor. Whew!
