But the frost and snow clung to the blackened branches, giving the appearance of thick full foliage on the trees. It made the hillside come alive, and the "snow blossoms" were beautiful to see, especially against the blue sky. On Ball Hill, we were lucky to see an atmospheric phenomenon called Fata Morgana, which is a rare type of super mirage caused by ...

Good thing there was plenty of snow...We were all exhausted, but as it was only 630pm, we forced ourselves to stay up a bit longer.

I think it was Josh who finally came up with a new game plan: unhook one trailer, and use that wheeler to tow the other and its load up, then, upon reaching the top, unhook that trailer. Both wheelers would then head back down, and repeat the towing process with the second trailer. This was a much better plan than what they were doing, and before long, all machines and trailers were at the top. It was decided that ...
