11 degrees

Mark and I had planned a hike for this morning. When I woke up and saw that it was 11 degrees outside, I started having second thoughts. Then I remembered that so many of my best memories involved doing stupid stuff ( many times w/ Mark ) ... so off I went at 5:30 to meet Mark at sunrise. We met- it was cold, but we had a really wonderful time. We hiked trails that are usually reserved for atv riding deer hunters. It's a swampy area, normally covered with 8-10" of water. Today the water was frozen solid and we were able to walk on top of it. We hiked down creeks and across ponds. What fun! We're optimistic that climate change will allow us to make more frozen treks in the future. -T
