Day 31


Winter started today. Really it started yesterday evening but it set into our bones today. It was brought in on a northern wind that had us all hiking in layers for the first time all trip. I even wore pants and socks today, along with a wind layer, hat, buff, and gloves all day long. We have been warned that snow will come soon and it will not be surprising when it does. Tonight we find sanctuary in a city at the end of the valley, which has the muddy beauty of canyon country. It amazes me how much I view these cities as such right now. More often I have seen the mountains as the sanctuary from the city. I think the abundance of great cheap food might really be the draw. Opposed to the abundance of our rural lunches that consist largely of peanut butter and the dinners of curry noodles.
