Still a little early

Decided to stay a few extra days at Rocky Mountain National Park. But it's still snowy up at the higher elevations. Wanted to do some of the Ute trail but t-storms threatened above tree line.
This morning went to miller pass to hike mt ida only to be confronted with piles of snow 5 steps into the trail.
So I drove down to hike to timber lake. 5 miles into the 5.4 mile trail I lost the path amongst the snow fields.
Tomorrow I'll kayak on Grand Lake.  I know there is no snow there. The choice is cold in the morning but calm; warm in the afternoon but a little windy.
Another month of this and my thighs will not jiggle when driving on washboard dirt roads.
