Colby Meadows

Yesterday we headed up to Colby Meadows for a wander. We usually go up there to ski. It’s about 45 minutes from Chico through Butte Meadows on the way to Humboldt Summit. Michael picked up small quantities of fry oil from the two bars up there which paid our mileage.
We hiked along the creek then crunched over surprisingly deep snow patches in a large loop around the swampy meadows. I saw a little black bear scooting away from us at top speed. The loop was maybe 5 miles but it reminded us what a good work out a wander can be, plus it was great to be out of the valley in an area that is still enjoying spring moisture and growth.
