Christina the trooper ~^~











well, i get a text message from one of the lady hikers, she wants to let me know that it IS snowing, and she might just go crawl into bed (she works night shift) and then i get a phone call from lady hiker #2, she has a sore throat and thinks she should stay in this morning...... But Christina the trooper, was going to brave it out. She really needed the second cup of coffee, and the "bathroom" break, so that the previous walking day would not be duplicated, although i must say, and this picture doesn't do it justice as we walked in falling snow for the first mile and 1/2. put some of her Medusa type hairdo in place....... her hair Was NOT touched and i can verify that.... We Hiked about 4 miles, and we went on a different trail, i forgot how hard this was.... its up and down, wide paths, , thin paths through the woods. when we first started, the snow was falling in soft thick flakes, ...BEAUTIFUL!!! the path leads down a steep hill......(opps we then must walk back up the steep hill to get back to the car) at the bottom of the hill there is a wooden bridge that is build over a trickling stream, that goes directly into a tunnel,........ immediately through the tunnel is a small pond, this path has so much neat stuff, there are these old brick buildings that are in ruins that have prob. been there for 75 to 100 years . the one other picture is of an old coal topple, i can look at it and imagine it working 100 years ago, dumping coal into boats to transport it down river.............
Needless to say......... we kept walking, and finally realized after 2 miles that we should turn around.......... so it was a 4 mile hike. Louie went with Us, and he was as happy as can be. Thanks Christina for being a trooper, I know that I can count on you rain or snow..... to get me out there on the trail......
