The thirty plus degree temperatures and lots of snow delighted 20 Tramps. There were some members that we have not seen for a number of years, one we wished we saw less of (he sometimes calls himself “SIR”). We actually were happy he showed up this time because he helped break trail for the ski group.
Fourteen of the twenty abandoned the idea of skiing and stepped into their snowshoes. Four of us decided to brave the fast snow and ski. The snow was deep and dense, and unbroken trails made for a good workout for both skiers and those on snowshoes. Nonetheless, those walking did four miles and skiers logged in five miles.
As we exited the woods to head home the rain began to pick up; we were happy we were able to complete our hike without getting wet.
As always, there were lots of laughs and comradery to be had at the end of the day at a local pub.
