A Hiking We Will Go...Even in the Snow!!

The forecast called for snow and lots of it.  I thought for sure Donna, our fearless leader, would cancel the hike scheduled for the next day. But she's a "neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow" kind of girl. She's also part Indian, and lived in Wyoming. And hunts. And hikes barefoot.

Three layers of pants, three shirts, a jacket, two pairs of socks, a face mask, hat and gloves later, I walked out the door at 7:30 a.m. and into...

Nothing.

After all the hoopla about how much it was going to snow,  it hadn't done anything!  But I was ready if it did.

It did.

My hiking partner for the day was Homer.  Homer is very LARGE.


He filled up my whole back seat.


He's also very cute 


And very friendly



It started snowing on the drive there


And kept snowing.

It snowed hard! I was glad I had my face mask (balaclava) on



There were about 10 diehards who showed up to hike. The dogs stayed warm with coats Donna provides, and they loved being in the snow.


I took this picture... 


Same pic in color


And this I took in our lane on the way home from the hike


12 inches of snow in all.

It was a good day. I survived the hike.

And Homer got adopted.
