Not Featured: Microspikes! When the trail got particularly icy (the last 100 yards or so) we put our microspikes on and were able to continue. My wife donned them first, I maintained a tough guy approach and then promptly ate it … Then, with the microspikes on we walked faceplant-free to the top where we had lunch and a thermos full of hot chocolate.
Also not featured: Earlier that day while out on a jog I saw two bald eagles!!
Also also … I’ll get back to writing more at some point but for now I’m just too impressed with how much beauty nature has to offer.
Back (apologies for my handwriting!)
The text of the postcard is
Merry Christmas to you and yours!
I hope you have a good visit from Santa, or not, I don’t want to force your hand or anything … So, you know, um, see ya next year.
P.S. This postcard was, apparently, written while watching a Michael Cera movie.
