Bancroft Fail

A couple of weekends ago, we headed out for Mt Bancroft. We went as far as our CRV would take us on the 4-wheel drive trail before we gave up and started hiking. It’s a beautiful area with 4 lakes near the base of the mountain. As mountains would have it, storm clouds started rolling in just as we were approaching the ridge. We waited 30 minutes to see if they’d pass, but in the end, we opted to return home safely. We are just about to leave home for attempt #2, but we’re backpacking in the night before this time. Here are a few pictures…we may not get anymore this time, depending on how our camera decides to behave.

This was the view opposite the mountain. It reminded me of the Smokies!
