"Denise and Nick were feeling it, so they decided to head back. I was determined and kept going to Flume solo. I put on my snowshoes and went. The snow on the tree branches were melting and were very wet. I quickly got soaked from this. I had my jacket on, so that helped. My pants were soaked. I made my way to Flume, quickly enjoyed the views, then headed back. I tried to hurry in the fleeting hope that I would catch up with Denise and Nick.
