Lost in the Clouds

I set out for Mt. Roberts to Sheep Creek loop today but it just wasn't meant to be. The clouds were settled in really low and as soon as I got beyond Mt. Roberts I had no idea where the hell I was or where I was going. I couldn't see more than a few feet in front of me and it was windy, rainy, and cold. I only went about 1/4 mile along the ridge beyond the established trail and I still had a hard time finding my way back once I decided it was time to turn around. Guess it's time to get me one of them there GPS thingies... or at least carry a damn compass next time. Still got a nice 11 miles in with about 5,000 feet of climbing.
