Make Your Mark on the World

Winter hiking. It's got everything- physical challenge, otherworldly beauty, solitude, flow, fussy gear you have to figure out.

But the best part is that you get to pee anywhere you want. The whole mountain is your personal
bathroom. I had to get used to stepping over those cheerful yellow holes from previous hikers. It's a special kind of hikers greeting. I like to write my name. Peed by Scooper. I'm finally making my mark on the world.

Mt Monadnock, Hiked, Solo, 4 miles. 2 hours going up, 1 hour sliding down.
Lotsa hikes in The Blue Hills this Winter, mostly 4 miles per session, 1.5 miles per hour.
