We were staying at the John Muir Lodge while hiking in Kings Canyon, California and among the redwoods. We checked the temperatures prior to making these arrangements, but there was an unusual cold snap and we were greeted by a late spring snow.
Although we live in Phoenix, AZ where it rarely snows or sleets, we carry an ice scraper because we often visit Flagstaff where it does snow; quite a bit. We were one of the few who were prepared for this eventuality.
This picture is more reminiscent of a winter scene than that of late spring and with the weather patterns across the United States changing, I thought I would share it!

As seen on the distant mountain in the photograph above, snow was still abundant on certain trails especially in areas that were under shade during the warmer part of the days. As we hiked Lembert Dome, we came across patches of snow; some quite large.
This did not deter us as we adjusted our path to avoid any difficult hiking spots.
The post for Day 173 provides a better idea of the patches of snow we found as we reached the top of Lembert Dome. You can see it HERE.

If the truth be told, and why not, I like cats, but I love dogs. In my experience dogs have personalities with depth. When I say I love dogs, I mean dogs like Golden Retrievers, Labrador Retrievers, Huskies, German Shepherds and other similar large breeds. I love to look into their eyes when you can actually visualize them “thinking.”
The Internet has had several articles about Loki recently and I wanted to share his story with visitors to JBRish.com.
The UK’sDaily Mailhas an article which will fill in some of the details, but the real story is told through the multitude of photographs. As you look through the pictures you will see that Loki looks very happy?!
