Owl's Head #32; In Memory Of Domino

Early enough start, pushed hard, very tired through the broken but loose snow. Not an inspired hike, more of one where we just worked hard to get in, get up, get down, get out after a long trek of between 16-17 miles after taking the Black Pond and Brutus bushwhacks to get back barely in time for the game. On the bright side, today's hike was done in memory of Domino, Kathy Patchen's wonderful dog. On the darker side, and on an entirely different note, 18-1 doesn't seem all that special after tonight's game. (Not sure yet about a slide show on this one as there weren't many photos taken. I shall see after I download the photos after tomorrow's hike.)
