Boulder River

I packed up the snowshoes and dog in the Matrix and set sights on Heather Lake. I forgot to put my tire chains in the car and that proved to be a limiting factor. As I stepped on the gas nearing the trailhead, the Matrix began to sliiiide back downhill. I was rolling solo, so cut my losses and just put it in reverse for the half mile down the hill back to the mainroad.

Having just purchased Zizou his first pair of shoes, I was determined to help him break 'em in. I called and interrupted my sister painting her face for the USC-UCLA game to get directions to Boulder River.

It's a low elevation hike, but there was still a nice dusting of snow.

It's an easy rolling stroll through the woods, so perfect after a frustrating start to the day. Just one other car at the trailhead when I arrived, but never bumped into them.
