Today we hiked up Mt. Si via the old trail. It's steeper than the new trail but a little bit shorter. It was nice to have much less people out there than we've typically seen on a Saturday morning. There was quite a bit of snow at the top and I was thankful to have my "yak-trak" like covers on for the icy spots!
It was definitely a cold one with all of the wind, but I did ok with my fleece, downcoat and rain coat. My hands froze despite having hand warmers in my gloves the entire time. And in this picture, my face is frozen as well. I felt like I had been to the dentist and was numb from forehead to chin, cheek to cheek. I had no idea what this smile would be like :)

I love hiking this time of year because of all of the snow-capped mountains around us! Gorgeous! And of course, Whiskey had a blast running up and down the trail with his new friend Oscar (golden retriever).

I'm sure we'll be hiking again soon if the weather permits!

Apparently "weather permitting" is just about anything! Atta girl!
