Write Up:
There's no better way to bring in a healthy new year than a good hike with great friends, and that's exactly what we did. The weather was perfect, and everyone arrived on time and ready for a good workout. Even Seth woke up from his New Year's Eve slumber in time to join us. As expected, Bryan set the pace, and we were able to complete the 8 miles in 3 hours. Jen, Paul, and Nate decided that 8 miles wasn't enough, so they climbed the summit while the rest of us hurried to the Sugarloaf Valley Mountain Winery for some of Sandra's homemade cupcakes and local flavor.

Peter celebrated the day by buying the first bottle, and some MOC members bribed their waitress with a brownie. It must have worked because rumor has it that Paul has a date to crotchet.

Thanks everyone for a great hike.
