Backpacking in the Blizzard of 2010

Filed under: Love,Recreation — admin @ 2:58 pm

It was a winter wonderland on our backpacking overnight camp in the woods in the middle of the Blizzard of 2010.  Beautiful snow.

We hiked from our house into some nearby woods to our destination squat that is inaccessible to all but the stalwart or/and foolhardy. When we got the news yesterday afternoon that Villanova would be closed today, we were on our way out the door. We arrived at our site after a hike through untrodden snow and drifts and streams, just in time to set up our tent in near dark and the start of falling snow. During the night I wondered why the tent was touching my nose – we were buried in snow and had to knock it off a number of times. In the morning we had breakfast (same as dinner the night before, Fran’s excellent bread pudding) and hot tea. Then a nice hike out, and home safe and sound and warm. FUN. My mother and various Facebook friends are still trying to figure out just how crazy are we. Fun to be married to my crazy soulmate.
