5.5 miles of hiking • 2000' elevation gain •

Had a great day out with my buddy Simon and Jason. The snow was stellar and it actually bonded fairly well to the rain crust that was buried 30" below. Wishing that I would have brought my ski's instead of slowshoes. I brought my dog Mindy with us on this trip and her age is finally starting to show. It was a long tough day for her, but she pushed through it like a champ. I suspected she was struggling earlier in the season when she couldn't keep up with me on the ski slopes anymore and it was taking her 3 days to recover at home. It breaks my heart when I have to leave the house without her, she gets so excited and then has a breakdown when she doesn't get to go. I will just have to plan for some smaller outings this year to keep her happy =)
