Our deep frost broke today, and we're actually going to be hovering above freezing on the weekend, so there's a chance for one last hike of 2008!
It was the end of 2006 that Dave and I hiked an impromptu loop called Alder Trail, close to Bragg Creek. That was the hike that made me realize I wanted -- needed -- to spend more of my time outdoors. Something about this time of year makes the forest magical.
Merry Christmas everyone.
