Back in the wilderness with hiking options galore. Yesterday was Wednesday, hiking day with a wonderful group of women. They hike, snowshoe and ski through all weather, with the exception of pouring rain or flooded trails. We hiked to Indian Head, a trip I had taken with Tim in the winter and posted about here. It was much more fun this time and I can hardly believe I did it on showshoes. We walked the road to the Gill Brook trail and followed the river with several waterfalls. Then we made a right and headed uphill. As a general rule, I don’t like hikes with ladders. This one had at least five. I don’t think we ever saw them when we did it in the snow. The view of Lower Ausable Lake, flanked by the mountains, was stupendous. We met a group of revelers at the top enjoying lunch and libations. I don’t think I would have like the ladders after that.
I finished my socks made from possum and wool yarn that I bought in New Zealand last year and am very happy with them. Now it’s onto a scarf made from beautiful kettle dyed yarn that Ramblinroo brought to Seguin for me from Nezinscot Farm Yarns and Woolens . Maybe Chelsea will like it.
