We never made it up to the Kinsmans yesterday. It was very icy down low and Atticus was slipping and sliding. He doesn't have the traction I do so we weren't going to push it. Today a storm was predicted and it has arrived. It will be snow, the ice and freezing rain before switching back to snow early in the morning. Then I believe it will be a kind weather weekend. Not great, but gentle. I'm just worried about the icy conditions. Today I added up the elevation gain and total mileage for our Bonds Traverse and our total elevation gain for the winter thus far is 55,716 feet. And we're only about a third of the way there when it comes to total peaks we'll do. When I consider that and look to my little hairy friend snoozing dreamily next to me I am filled with even more awe when considering the size of his body and the size of his heart. Think about it...55,716 feet. Kind of neat.
