The sun was shining on March 27, but it didn’t feel a thing like spring. The high temperature of the day was in the low 30s. But it was the best day, weather-wise, of the week, so it was time for me to go hiking. After rubbing some Musher’s Secret wax on my dog Oreo’s paws (to moisturize and protect them from the icy snow), we jumped in the car and headed to a hike not far from the coast. See if you recognize the trail by viewing the photos below. Leave your best guesses in the comment section at the bottom of the page. Winner gets a high five and a mention in the updated post. And as always, stay tuned for tomorrow’s “1-minute hike” video and summary of the trail.
