For the past couple of days my coworker and I have been trying to go on a mountain bike ride.  Monday we got denied because of trail maintenance, Tuesday rain, Wednesday rain, and today I fortunately had to run errands.  I say fortunately because my coworker along with two of our friends attempted a hike.  My coworkers got to the turn around of the hike and got stuck in a torrential down pour!  I got back to work to see their hair wet as dogs and clothes drenched as if they just got out of a shower.  This is one hike that I was glad to miss out on.  Although some might think this rain is putting a damper on our plains but in reality this will make the trails amazing and give us one last shot of green vegetation before fall colors officially start taking over.
