It may have snowed Friday, but Saturday was beautiful. We saw a bit of snow, but except for the very sheltered areas, it was gone by the time we headed home.
Location: Audra State Park
Trail: Alum Cave Trail
Distance: 3.3 miles
Elevation: 1674-1820 feet
Temperature: 49-59 F
The only trail is the Alum Cave Trail that runs along the Middle Fork River, but the river is in sight for pretty much the entire hike, so who cares if it’s out and back?
We saw the kayakers unloading. They caught up as we were sitting on a rock listening to the water.
There are many little trails heading off the Alum Cave Trail to take you down to the water.
There are a few deep areas like this, where the river looks calm, but with the river as high as it was, much of it was white water.
It was a lovely day.
