This post is dedicated to our hiking friends. To celebrate equinox today, we snowshoed up Blueberry Hill. (To refresh your memory from middle school science, equinox happens twice a year when the Earth’s axis doesn’t tilt one way or another in relationship to the sun. It’s directly aligned with the Equator. That means 12 hours of daylight.) The weather was perfect; about 10 degrees, slightly overcast. We took off at 9:00 this morning, walking out toward the airport and strapping on the snowshoes when the trail started uphill through the trees.
No need for the fur hat or the fleece vest on the way up, but out of the trees was colder.
It was windy up on top, just like Matthew said it would be.
Hans thought the title of this post should be “Thrills on Blueberry Hill”, but Bonnie read the lyrics and said, “Yeah, well, that couple split up!”
