Still in Hope...we like it here!

Monday November 26...11:30pm

Went for a hike up to the Hope Mountain Lookout. The guidebook said it was a 3 hour hike return trip, but we've learned that the guidebooks are not usually very accurate with hike times, and we can usually knock an hour or so off that. It did say it was a "steep" hike though,
and they weren't kidding about that. It was uphill every step of the way for an hour and a half. But the beautiful view of the town was worth it. They had been calling for rain and snow though, so we didn't spend a lot of time there and headed back down before 3pm. By the time we got to the bottom it was spitting rain, so we timed that nicely.

Made supper for Cory and Elaine tonight. Curried salmon loaf is one of our favorites, and it went over well. Anne and Chris came over after dinner and we had no shortage of conversation as they are also avid RV'ers. They have a 34 ft 1996 motorhome and so it was interesting to share discussion about that as well. They're coming back over for supper tomorrow night, so we'll be able to continue the conversations then.

It is now white outside! They had been calling for rain/snow, and sure enough, we got snow. They say it's odd for this time of year, and it likely won't last long, but the ground and the roads are covered with heavy white snow. But I'm certain that it's above freezing, so it will likely all be gone by tomorrow afternoon.
