Good Weekend

Had an excellent weekend!  Started out with leaving work early to burn some annual time before maxing out.  Then Mia and I hiked the new Marjory Swope Park as a night hike put on by the 5 Rivers Conservation Trust.  The turn out was pretty darn good for how cold it was.  I would say at least 25 people showed up.

After the hike we headed to Dos Amigos for a late-ish dinner.

Saturday we awoke to the first snow of the season and headed out for a walk on the trails near our house.  We had fresh tracks for most of it.

Sunday Paul and I met with with Jesse & Chris who have done a LOT of the trail work at Page Hill.  The conditions were interesting considering there was still a lot of snow, but most of it was rideable.  There were a few tricky sections though.  Good ride and the weather was pretty decent too.

After the ride Mia and I went and cut down our Christmas tree for this year.  Every year that we decorate a tree it becomes more and more a tale of our lives together.  Whenever we go on trips we try to pick up an ornament.  So now after 11 years together we have a pretty sweet collection of ornaments from Bar Harbor, San Francisco, Hershey Park, Myrtle Beach, Key West, etc.  I wonder what it will look like in 20 more years?

Hope everyone else had a good weekend too.

Thanks for reading.
