April 4, 2011 began in Bremerton as a gray rainy day. The appointed carpool location was
Bremerton airport. Four goats were there ready to go and gathered in a car to stay out of the rain.(ok, maybe we felt we were nuts!) All ready to go at the appointed 8:00 (ok, maybe it was 7:56) – so we left.

Drive to Staircase and Copper Creek was uneventful though with windshield wipers in force. And, because of snow, rain, fatigue of stomping to our knees, we turned back before the top, saving that stretch for another spring day of the future.

Something like 3 ½ hours on the trail. A stop at Hoodsport Coffee Co. finished the day.

Happy Hiking, Jim

But wait – there is more!!!!!!

Having been deserted at the rainy Bremerton Airport, Dick and I decided to return to the dryer
northerly latitudes. We chose the Pope Resources Tract, north access.

The rain remained to the south and only began as we arrived back at the parking lot around noon. A dry and level walk in good company.

Happy hiking, Neil
