We've all been a bit under the weather lately. I'm not sure what's up with Molly and I but I'm pretty sure that THIS is what is bothering Maxx and Bry. Pesky pollinating trees!
Bry went out to grb a couple of peaks last weekend with Jonathan and Cameron. The weather was perfect. That means that the temperatures were below thaw in the Adirondacks - so no mud, no floods, no avalanches. Good for them, too bad for all of the rest of us. It's a bit chillier than I would like around here today.
Some scoff at the Adirondacks because the elevation isn't as high as Western mountains. Granted, there are plenty of trails tame enough for me to wander around on but the terrain is pretty rugged off the beaten path and the weather can be pretty unforgiving if you aren't prepared. Bry and his brothers have been taking a winter trip since Molly was very little. Derek hasn't been able to make it the last couple of years but Cam has been filling in. I always feel better when Bry is out with more than one other adult.
Molly was sad about not being able to go this year but her broken arm would have made the hike a bit too rough for her. She stayed home and watched '80's chick flicks with me instead.
