Stronghold in the snow

It was an ambition of mine to hike the Stronghold trail in the snow, and this morning we had the opportunity to do just that. Generally snow is here for just a number of hours, but it remained cold yesterday, and from here it looked like there was plenty left because the Stronghold is so protected.

It was a beautiful hike in now-gorgeous weather. We set no speed records as we had to watch for ice here and there, and slog through 4 inches of snow. It is always peaceful there, but in the snow it was total silence. Delightful!

Next June we will remember that we hiked this trail in the snow: Christmas Eve, 2009.
