Comments
Comments: Tough day out there for Taylor, Uncle Bob, The Old Mountaineer, and myself. Miserable trail breaking conditions with a foot to two feet and at times more of powder covered by a thicccc crust. Our reward for finally getting to treeline was freezing fog, negative windchills, and a ripping wind. Scored Tom a few more for his winter 67 over 70 years old today though, mission accomplished. If you want ‘em, go get ‘em, it’s not going to last long.
