Comments
Comments: First measurable snow of the season and I hiked local today. I have to remind myself that there are good hikes within 15 minutes of home sometimes. Chose Watatic since there are no dogs allowed on Monadnock and Isis needed a walk. Ice under the snow makes traction a great idea. I wore my spikes to descend. A great day on the trail to stretch out and take a break from the holiday season.
