It was a bit chilly and certainly mushy in parts on account of the bizarre snowfall the day before, but the hike in the Winsted Woods, which has entrances at Gilbert High and traces along old route 8 North, was scenic and enjoyable. Both Marc and I got a chance to break in and test out our new hiking boots (he in Scarpa’s and I in Columbia’s). We were both pleased with the results. We forgot to jam to some Van Morrison’s Into the Mystic, which has been on my mind lately, when we arrived home, so I’ve included it below to play if you wish.
