New Years Day on Tongue Mountain
My 3rd annual New Year's Day Hike with some awesome coworkers and their significant others. We like to find a lean to, build a fire and eat heartily!! This year's buffet included shrimp, hot beef stew, deviled eggs, cheese and pepperoni and beverages. These people are not afraid to carry some heavy food and drink. A couple of bottles of wine, some physician's assistant's recommended Yagermeister and several cans of beer made the trip. Too long partying at the lean to contributed to our hike down the mountain in the dark and rain. It was icy and slippery; my first time using my microspikes which are well worth the investment. My father bought himself a pair the next day. Nonetheless, it was a perfect start to 2012.
