Long, long ago, I mentioned that I wanted to hike all 798 miles required to earn the State Forest Trails Award.
Last weekend, I went out into the frosty mountains with Klinutus and my evil sister. It was about 16 degrees up in the snowy mountains.
I got to try out my Subaru’s AWD in the snow for the first time. It worked very nicely.
There was a lot of rocks. I hate rocks. Especially when they’re under the snow and you can’t see them.
Because I am a very clever boy, I had a thermos full of coffee in my backpack. So, I was fully caffeinated for the hike.
There are a lot of nice views on this section of the trail. Here is Klinutus contemplating endless infinities or whatever.
At any rate, it was very nice, except that I twisted my ankle or something out there, and have been out of commission for the past week.
Klinutus brought along his camera tripod, so we could pose for our end-of-the-hike group photo.
Another four miles down, only 768 left to go!
