Description of Hike:
This was a hike into the Bull of the Woods wilderness area. Normally, this trail isn’t open this early, but since there has been very little low elevation snow this year, the trailhead was still accessible. Actually, there was NO snow at the trailhead, and the only place I saw snow was at the high point of the hike, about 3000′. I hiked to the crossing of Dickey creek, ate lunch and turned around. It was a glorious day in the woods which I had all to myself. I had forgotten how beautiful the large trees are at the bottom of the first hill. It is a tough climb back up, but it is the price you pay for the beautiful old trees.
