Mandy and David are adventurers at heart – which is a good thing too. This session would have never turned out as awesome as it did if they hadn’t been up for anything!
If our planning conversations could be summarized in just a few sentences it would go something like this:
Me: Hey guys, I was thinking maybe we’d meet at the trailhead (an hour from where you live …) at 6 a.m. And then we can hike for 45 minutes or so and then I’m going to have you crawl around on some icy, frozen rocks, and it might be really cold. Oh, and it might snow. Uh, is that ok?
Them: Yes. Let’s do it. Can we bring our dog?
As you all know, my answer to “Can I bring my dog?” is never “no”!
So the four of us (including Cascade the pup, obviously!) hit the trail on a cold early winter day just after sunrise. And it was totally worth it. Enjoy!
