Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
Here in the California Foothills, it has been a cool summer, with much more rain than we usually get. It got up to 100 degrees the last day or two, but won't stay up there for very long. My wife and I took a hike today to Donner Peak, up at the summit of the Sierra off Interstate 80. Much of the trail was covered with water from melting snow, but we kept our feet dry by walking on rocks.
But we didn't make it to Donner Peak. The snow was too deep, so we found our way to a rocky crag with a beautiful view of Donner Lake. The wildflowers were spectacular. Unfortunately, so were the mosquitos.
Beautiful hike, though.
