So winter decided to show up after a very warm and mild December and January. Nick gave me a ring and suggested the idea. I didn’t have any of my hiking winter shit together but still wanted to go. Nick and I hit the trail around 7pm with it being a butt freezing 18 degrees!
We brought our micro spikes and hiking poles as the trail turns incredibly steep. (2100 feet of elevation gain in 2 miles steep!) There was a chilly wind striking my face and there was anywhere from 1-3inches of untracked snow. Nick brought his black lab Able and he was an excellent hiking dog.
Such a great night with the city lights shining, crescent moon and twinkling stars. Good friends and a little weed
