White Christmas present

Phoenix Mountain was closed, so we got the opportunity to earn our turns
and check out the snow up on Mt. Baldy, a beautiful mtn to the west of us.
This tree reminded me of an Inukshuk
Mark was super strong as usual breaking the trail.  I was conserving energy.
At the top the rime ice was pretty spectacular.
You can see these structures from miles away looking at Mt. Baldy.
This is proof I was there...
and finally, what we came for after hitting the top.  Pow pow all the way down.

Sunny day for a hike above Greenwood

It's a beautiful day and the HF bands should be open, so I've got my radio and a thermos full of hot chocolate in my pack as I explore the hills West of Greenwood.
