    We set out for a mountain hike,
    We numbered seven odd.
    Snow drifted down upon us like
    Dandruff from an aging god.
    Underneath our footsteps squeaked
    As our leader led us round,
    And round and round, and round and round,
    And round and round and round.
    Superlative hike hike, lovely weather, lovely people!
    Thank you Harry and all who hiked.

    Well it wasn't exactly Gunnery but did find a winter wonderland. Happy to have had my GPS today & happy to find the tracks of that other group of people on this hike. Funny they didn't seem to have cars at the trailhead. LOL. Thanks all.
