  • Vly, Bearpen 12-27-2019

    Friday, December 27 didn’t have the best weather forecast for a hike. Overcast, foggy and rain during the first few hours. A day to test your rain gear. A bit of a slog in the fog.

    Remarkably, we encountered more hikers in the mist today than on some of the beautiful days of recent past. It was a nice treat to meet some 3500 Club leaders hiking in a group of three and engage in some pleasant trail chitchat.

    Today it was spikes all the way on well traveled paths. The snow getting thinner and softer and wetter. By the time we got to Bearpen the rain had stopped and we were able to have a nice lunch break near one of the truck chassis.

    specs: five pairs of Hillsounds all fitted with Velcro straps. Snowshoes went piggyback.
