Hiked up in complete solitude.  Fist person on the trail that day.  The higher I climbed the more snow that I encountered.  Soft and sticky and easy to walk on.  I loved looking back on my footprints in the snow.  Stopped halfway down and just listened.  Closed my eyes.  Complete quiet and solitude.  Pure serenity.

Took a picture in my mind and will try to hold onto this moment.

  1. Nice! I’m headed here on Thursday, but going from the Maiden Lake trailhead on the east side for a change.
