Great day hike report. And you are right, for me it is often so difficult to just take the 1st step and get out there. But, it is all so rewarding if I just get out there, even if just for a few hours. Glad you got to some snow time after last years disappointing conditions.
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
