Terrain - rolling hills and fields, not difficult

Distance - about 4 miles

Hike time -  2 +  hours

    10 hearty souls came out to face the cold, but the sun gods took us under wing. Hiking conditions had greatly improved and varied from the glitchy to the sublime. Jennifer inspired us to lay on the frozen snow surface and take in the rays - again - thank you Jennifer. As always a great group of people.

    Hike Bailout Options: I am doing the hike in reverse, this allows us more options if either trail conditions or temperatures merit early bail out for some or all.

    Trail Conditions: Trails/snow base height have after this past week have experienced considerable meltdown/evaporation. I am not anticipating tough conditions. If we are "very lucky" we might experience that magical surface hiking conditions, where we walk on the frozen crust above the base.

    Temperature/comfort: Temps will be low, wind is low, humidity is low, solar radiation with snow base is very high. This cold hike was selected for it's minimal shade characteristics.

    Temperature/comfort - precautions: I know you people think of Long Johns/a layer of pantyhose, ear protection. Generally a scarf is something we usually do not think of until our cheeks get cold, I am putting mine in the car and will decide in the parking lot.
