Early Spring Comes the to the Run...

Hi Ho From the Icicle Valley!

I just had to post a quick note to fill you in on current conditions. If you can make a break to the Icicle Valley and Run of the River anytime soon...do so. It is magical!



Snow is receding quickly. We have cool temps, but very sunny days. The bikes are out, the low hikes are opening up to some green hills and glacial lillies.



If you want to linger in winter, the snowshoes are still ready for a tromp in the upper Icicle Canyon.



The west facing decks are perfect for afternoon cookies and a fresh cup of coffee. Letting the sun collect, while you sway to the easy rhythm of the refuge is the perfect way to end the day in the Valley.



For birding, the Evening Grossbeaks are back in packs! Perhaps misnamed, they appear on the feeders in groups every morning. While you are feasting inside, they are outside chirping, feeding and flitting about. Quite a scene!

Hi Ho Monty,
For the many times I've gone to the website to whet my appetite for our fourth visit to Run of the River in just a few weeks, I've not noticed the blog option. I notice no one has yet posted a comment, so I thought I'd say "hi". I guess that cross country at Sleeping Lady won't be an option for Alain and myself! We are looking forward to seeing you all. For those of you who are perusing this website for the first time, don't delay in making a reservation! This is our favorite place to stay! Anne G.
