our maiden adventure into the woods : success!

what an inspiring morning we had together out in the woods! thank you for all of you who joined.
i was pleased beyond expectation with our group of eight bold and generous women.
your enthusiasm and courage to head out into the snow was incredible. what a gift you have given me,
and all who did and will participate in this momentous group. mountains will be moved!

after i passed out a bit of homemade banana bread to everyone
we trudged our way up cardiff fork as we took time to get to know each other
through conversations so rich and varied it makes a heart beat quickly.

it was great to see experienced outdoorswomen and novice outdoorswomen simply enjoy themselves.
some with less experience were worried about the cold, but were relieved to find the hiking kept them warm, and i was happy to have the experience of others as we told stories of both encouragement and discouragement.

after our descent back down into the valley we headed to the waffle truck for some deliciousness
on such a cloudy cool morning. it really hit the spot.

we are ready for more adventures indeed.

next adventure: cross country skiing in january!

again, this adventure will be open to all experience levels. i don't even own a pair of cross-country skis, and i'm totally ready to try it out. hope you are too. more info to come soon.
