Last weekend we set out on a 30 mile jaunt with a chance of powder. After a 5 mile night hike under clear sky's we set up on trail left by difficulty creek. Awoke the next morning to 2" of snow. Now I have become a fair weather hiker for many years, but in an effort of completion I rolled with it in trail runners and wool socks. Had a great day! Got in around 17 miles i guess on Saturday and finished up on Sunday with no snow in site. Lots of history in this section including old mines, train station and some old Kentucky trail. The Sheltowee has once again proven itself to be a fun ride!

Nice Gambit!! unfortunately my Sheltowee hike is on hold. i contracted covid early in Dec., had a very mild case, thank God. but the recovery has been a little tough. went on hike at frozenhead 3 weeks ago, 1st hike since having the virus, and found out my legs were VERY fatigued. so i've been doing short 5 mile hikes once a week trying to get back into hiking shape. but i'll be out there as soon as i feel fit!!
