Meyers Homestead Trail

We hiked the Meyers Homestead Trail today. The first part of the trail was covered in hoof prints and scat. It looked like a herd of elk had passed through. Sure enough a few switchbacks later we saw a herd of elk. They spooked easily and took off further away from the trail.

The trail continued uphill for 2.5 miles through a few inches of fluffy snow. Along the way we entered a cloud. Visibility was limited and the trees were coated with rime. We knew we made it to the end of the trail because there was an "END OF TRAIL" sign. Genius. On the way back the clouds broke up a bit and we saw the sun and some blue skies.
