Been by Tom's Thumb in a few holiday group hikes. Keep saying I'll return for just the Thumb but never do it. Figured temps would rival the surface of Mars. Bought my first bag of ice* this morning to take advantage of being in the NE valley after the short Brown's Peak hike with jj.

Toasty and deserted. The outbound views and upper range make up for the crap tread.

* From age 13 to 16 at a bait shop outside of Norman OK I sold a lot of ice. Worked for a respectable man that made a living renting houses, winning pro bass tournaments and ran the bait shop on Lake Thunderbird. My job title was dipping minnows. It was more taking polaroids of 100+ lb catfish, admiring bikinis, stocking and selling beer and seemingly a bag of ice to everyone. The highlight was a staff including Gerdie and Tank. Gerdie put up with a curious kid messing around with the store security system. A loaded shotgun under the register counter. Me - why is this trigger wobbly. Gerdie - oh you don't wanna... BOOM. Fear not, 20-40 cartons of cigarettes took the shot. When the cotton/tobacco confetti party settled I continued running the register. Tank taught me the cool things in life.
