Stripped down to a t-shirt at the start of the hike as snow began to swirl around us.As the temperature decreased and the snow increased, we finally made it to the "space ship landing." It's where three trails converge and the .3 mile Long Trail to the summit begins. The sign next to bill is on a stake that sticks up five feet or so out of the ground. The sign had been dug out so as not to miss the trail.
The snow clung to every branch with the delicateness of powdered sugar.
And soon, Camels Hump turned into another world. It looked as if powdered sugar and marshmallow fluff exploded...delicious enough to lick off the gingerbread house trees that surrounded us.
On the summit, planet marshmallow transformed into a Futurama version of Mars. It was truly out of this world.
Smiles at the summit.
