This is about a 90-minute hike if you don't stop and take in ...

Hopefully the weather gets better soon. Snow is desperately needed and it'll probably snow all day on the 26th. No idea what the coming days will be like but it's for sure that I won't be getting a day off anytime soon. Not that I mind, once you set your mind to it it's not that hard to work two weeks straight. If ...
