Mention a hiking trip and there is sure to be whining. It can get very disheartening very quickly. This trip was no exception. Although five minutes into it Gwyn said, "I'm behind because I'm looking at how beautiful it is here." Finally!
J didn't try to pick trails with sheer cliffs and only slabs of ice to walk on, but alas, that's what happened. We had hiked each of the trails previously, but never when they were covered with snow/freezing rain/ice pack. Needless to say, we made it back safely. No one was injured during this adventure. And we will stick to less cliffy terrain for our next snow hike (if there is one this season).
|G became very interested in reading the map to figure out where we were. It was so very Jesse like.|
