Write Up:
It seemed to be a day of new experiences--a good deal of members were out for their first MOC event, it was the first time for at least one person (the organizer) to hike with dogs, and hiking on ice and slush with the occasional sleet was most likely a new experience for many hikers.

Even with the novelties it was a great hike. The view from Annapolis Rock was magnificant. Black Rock had a great view as well, but with a little sleet and stunning winds, 20 seconds on the edge of the rock was quite an experience.

Most important, we finished. Not only did we finish, we finished with no one falling on the ice (or at least no one hurt themselves from a fall). Also, new MOCers mixed with the "veterans" and good conversation flowed all around.

Despite the weird darkening of the sky and sleet around Black Rock, by the time we were done the sun was out and shining on the hikers.
