What a nice change to wake up to yesterday. Our winter has been lived under cloudy skies and tons of snow, more of which is promised us this week. When yesterday dawned in blue skies, Jeff and I were out the door, hiking boots on-foot, and MD dancing along beside. We could manage just a short walk as the day held other obligations, but starting with a walk sets up an entire day to be better…but, as you already know that.
We chose our local, short, but steep Drinking Horse trail. It’s a good walk along the slower route, and a thoroughly good walk along the steeper route. We usually head on up the steeper route and then opt for a longer walk coming down along the slower route.
The path was pretty quiet yesterday, with us spotting one red squirrel, two Mountain chickadees and the ever-present magpies. Not many fellow hikers, either. Must have been a good skiing day.
Jeff and MD, starting on our way down…
Our new, super cleats were the answer for all the ice we encountered. Love ’em.
Hope you have sunshine and blue skies wherever you walk 🙂
