Bruce and Denny graciously invited us to their annual New Year's hike.

With a known creek crossing in the first mile... could have come prepared for wet feet on a sub 40° hike.

The trail got sloppy muddy in spots. Expected after recent rains. Albiet no walk in the park the off trail wasn't as bad as nearby Skull Mesa. Which notoriously takes your shoes off in mud gluck.

Shortly after arriving at the peak it began to snow. The snow flake show picked up. Largest snow flakes I recall since childhood.

The beautiful warm sun made an appearance on the return.

Numb wet feet are generally a recipe for the worst. While I'm not eager for a repeat I'm grateful for the opportunity to hike with these fine folk!
