I'm a wee bit late on this post... about three weeks late. But it was a pretty hike and worth a post none the less. This winter we have been so busy with moving, house projects, work, other whatevers and whatnots so any day when we have the opportunity to get outside and go play, we take it. This mini trek was to Pratt Mountain. There was still quite a bit of snow and we didn't make it to the top because I can be a bit of a wussy when it comes to very steep slopes that act as a 3000 ft chute to I-90 (I know... totally irrational fear ) We turned around when things got iffy and had a nice picnic by a frozen lake and were accompanied by the prettiest little scavengers. It was snowy. it was sunny. we were together. it was a good day, summit or not.
