I confess that I had a hard time making myself go to this hike, but I'm glad I did. There were quite a few new people. Fifteen hikers in all. No one ever got a picture of everyone together.
My head was so fuzzy, and the walking challenging with just enough snow to cover obstacles and create resistance, that I took very few pictures.
Lightly dusted baby jack pines caught my eye.
We quickly split into several groups, and I spent a lot of time in the caboose because wanted to talk with the couple who were in the rear. They are great hikers and last month I hardly said hello to them. They are the owners of Lily, the beagles' beagle who can out-beagle any other tiny hound I know. They are beginning to get some control of her with a radio collar training system.
We actually hiked a portion that I maintain, but it sure looks different in winter.
Spend the rest of the day dozing off and playing my game. I didn't manage any sleep before the hike, and that totally messes with my head.
