The first nice day of the year, I played hooky and went to check out Pratt Lake. Unfortunately, my plans changed when I hit deep snow about a mile and a half up the trail. After post-holing up to my knees, I decided to forgo Pratt and cut over to Olallie Lake instead. Well, Olallie was still snowbound as well. Had some lunch on a mound of snow and let Kirin play with the nearby Camp Robbers. Got a tan.
