Cold

At home, temperatures were in the low teens. The road leading out – covered in a foot of snow. My AWD sedan struggled along, nosing snow out of the way in front, the rear sliding side to side across the road. As I drove towards the mountains and rose in elevation, the snow only grew progressively deeper and the temperatures only dropped lower. Barely and with spinning tires, the car came to a halt and would go no further in the deepening snow. But I’d made it to the trailhead, albeit parked at an unintended angle and at a slightly unintended location. I’ve heard it can be too cold to snow, but with a temperature in the single digits here, snow fell readily. Hopefully, I’d be able to get out later – at least it was all downhill...

Thoughts on a chilly day hike, and all that winter has to offer. Read more in Issue 25:
