Well, the hike didn’t happen! Although the foot is healing nicely, last Sunday wasn’t a good day to try McNaughton here in the Adirondack High Peaks. There was 20″+ on the ground, and with the mileage up around 17 miles and snowdrifts guaranteed, we opted to err on the side of caution. It’s good though, because today I was on the treadmill for the first time… RUNNING! YESSSSS.

So, it looks like the adventure season will soon enter a lull. Next weekend will be the surgery, and Christmas prepping, Christmas, and then a WEDDING! All the while recovery will remain a priority so we can hit some more winter peaks. If you haven’t tried it yet, you should. Winter hiking is amazing! Just use hand and foot warmers!


Oh, and check out the sales at EMS! We picked up snowshoes and spikes for huge discounts!
