We had fun. It was one of those hikes where the conversation is flowing and fun the whole time. Hiking often is that way I think. At home there are lots of distractions, but on a hike you can talk with nothing else going on. Plus, you have a clear head and an active mind because your blood is pumping. We talked about how ridiculous it is to think you're a more moral person than someone else because they happen to be gay (lots of talk about this subject on Facebook right now because of the speech on the matter during the lds conference). This got us on a religious and then political train of thought and we had lots to discuss from there.
There's also some old mining equipment and tracks.
Munchies' hands were cold even extremely bundled up so I just kept layering on more clothes until she looked like the kid from A Christmas Story. Finally she warmed up.
Later we went to REI and got her this warm outfit. It's got feet and hand covers that flip over. It's going to be much nicer to be able to put her in this instead of having to layer so many thinner clothes to get her warm. We also got her a very warm hat and gloves.
Here's a video from the top. Note my agile spear throw.
Now, if you find yourself in a video type of mood, here's a 19 second video of Munchies modeling her new winter suit.
