    Default Snow Hikes

    So we went to CO for a long hiking weekend to see the fall colors, and instead got dropped in the middle of winter! My dream actually, as I love snow almost as much as I love mountains. This photo is from a 15 mile hike that almost killed me, as we were scrambling up icy and snowy rocks. But I'm in one piece.

    Also came home with a 2 pound gain. Muscle HAS to weigh more than fat, right?!?

    Great job, don't think I could hike that far and know that I couldn't take that cold and snow. The only after-effect of surgery that I'd change is the Raynaud; it literally kicks my butt when it's cold. My hands look frostbitten and my body feels like it seizes when the cold comes, it's unnatural. I've told my doctor that moving to a warmer climate should be covered under my healthcare insurance, like that would/could happen!

    You're amazing, sraebear, just amazing and a great role model!

    Wow what a beautiful place. I'm very impressed that you were able to hike through the snow. That would have been hard work.
    Always an inspiration to us!

    I want that too...
    English is not my first language anymore, so I may and do make mistakes in my spelling, or say things oddly. Please ask me, if you want any clarifications.
