Rained Out!

For the second day in a row my guided hikes at Buckskin Mountain State Park have been rained out. For many years I participated in, and led hikes with the Chemeketans, an outdoor club in Salem Oregon, where the idea of canceling a hike on the account of rain, or for that matter weather, of any kind would have been laughable. Yesterday we received an inch of rain, and today my guess is that we will probably end up with at least a half an inch more.  To put this in perspective, I would point out that this area’s total annual rain fall is around three inches, so we have experienced half of the total rain for the year in the last two days!
