Write Up:
We woke up early Saturday morning to hike nearly 13 miles in a few inches of snow. There were two uphills on this hike, the most notable being a 700 ft climb in less than a mile after lunch. Lunch was made interesting with lots of Civil War monuments and plaques. Unfortunately, there wasn't a dry place to sit, so we dined in the snow. With the cold weather, we made sure to move pretty fast and finished shortly before 4 p.m.. It was nice to spend an entire day outdoors, exerting ourselves over ice, conquering the uphills, and enjoying the frozen trees.

Thanks to everyone who came out and I hope you had fun!
