It's that time again, and it looks like the transition to Spring is beginning for the valley despite any glancing blows that Winter might yet deliver. Most of the snow is gone, and the temperatures are trending higher, the days a little longer.
Hit the Trail and I made it out and did a loop in the foothills, one that both of us do for exercise and conditioning, both on and off trail. There is still some ice in recesses and no shortage of mud, especially on trails / paths but it's shaping up. For this time of the year when the sun was out it was warm, when it wasn't it was cold and dull.

Nice day for a quick training loop. I forgot to bring my camera so I can't add any photos. Wait, then it hit me. My cell phone camera is probably as good as my regular camera anyway! Here's one I got.

Found my first Yellow Bell on Entiat Ridge above Swakane Canyon last year the last week of February of all places.
