We always say you do not know what the weather will really be like until you are at the trail-head. I have had many hikes where the forecast did not sound good but then the day turned out quit nice. Then there are those few times when the weather turns out much worse than forecasted. This was one of those days. I had planned this hike a few days earlier when it was only supposed to be a 20% chance of drizzle. I thought that weather would be good for doing off trail and trying to track down some of the 140 lakes and ponds in Indian Heaven. The hazy sunlight would be good for doing photos of the lakes I found. Well none of that worked out. Winter has arrived in Indian Heaven.
