“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”

6 inches of fresh snow.

Only one option today: hike. Or snowshoe, I guess, but I kind of like how the lack of traction under my feet forces my legs to use all those stabilizer muscles. You know what I’m saying.

So I headed to the Monument. I got a text from Maria saying she was in the area so she joined me. We headed up Devil’s kitchen. It was challenging, and fun, and nice to just talk and vent with a friend.
