Escape to Hex Mountain

Feeling the heavy pressure of hitting my quarterly publishing quota on this blog, I conjured up an excuse to visit Hex Mountain via snowshoes on the darkest day of the year. Owen was kind enough to join me.

Turns out that shortest day of the year translates to longest night in the tent. After enduring roughly 15 hours of cold, dark togetherness in cramped quarters, we heartily welcomed the dawn and the chance to retrace our steps through the winter wonderland.
