Sunday in Alta

I love to hike (understatement)…I love the rain (another understatement)…I really like when it starts to rain when I’m out hiking…but I’m not a huge fan of going out to hike when it’s already raining and is expected to rain all day……can’t really explain that last part, but that’s the way it is with me.   So…instead of venturing out for a rain-soaked hike to Red Pine Lake as we had planned…my hiking son and I drove to the end of Little Cottonwood Canyon, past the cozy ski-town/village of Alta, and stopped for a few minutes in the parking-lot at the trail-head for Cecret Lake (yes, “Cecret”) in the Albion Basin.  I rather like the effect of the raindrops of the windscreen of the truck…and I rather enjoy the effect of the clouds on the mountains, too.
