More control checking, but today I had Dad with me and it wasn't raining, which was much nicer. Legs were kinda sore, but I wasn't moving too fast so it was fine.

Checking some control locations in Larch Hills for Sage Stomp next weekend. I think I picked the worst possible time of day to go, the morning was cloudy, but only a little bit of rain, but it was raining pretty much the entire time that I was out, and then on my drive home there was blue sky. It also hailed a little bit I think, I never felt any hail hit me, but there was hail on the ground, but only in certain places, mostly in tiny little low spots, and there was no sign of hail anywhere else, which was really weird. I'm guessing all the hail bounced into the low spots, and melted faster everywhere else, which is why I could only see it in the low spots, but I'm really not sure. I didn't get to check as many controls as I wanted, the rain really didn't motivate me to run faster, and I was cold and wet and miserable and really didn't want to run more the I had to. I guess I'll go back tomorrow and check the rest of the control sites. I also ran into some snow, which was unexpected. It wasn't covering the entire ground, but I did have to step in it a few times. I was very surprised when I saw the first patch, there was barely any on mount Ida two weeks ago, and this is 500m or so lower in elevation, but I guess the older growth forest is dense enough that the snow just doesn't melt.
