#PlanB #BePreparedToChange #LongTrails #WeatherReports ==> “After about half of mile of trudging through more than half a foot of snow that dropped last night, we realized that finding trail was already difficult, and yet another 5 to 8 inches of snow is expected today and tonight. This realization (coupled with a little common sense) brought us to the decision to hike this trail another day in the future. We’re now headed into town for a hot cocoa and in search some fried chicken.”
