|Pretty much snow from here on|
|We could see Lookout Mountain|

It wasn't a very long trip in miles (5.5), but we went up and down around 2,000 feet of elevation, and we had to deal with all the snow and ice! But no rain. It didn't start to rain until we had almost reached the cars! Now it's blowing and raining like crazy out there, but I'm at home, writing this early blog post, and realizing that no matter how much I don't want to go out on a Thursday, I will probably be glad I went. And today is no different: I am exercised and got to be challenged a little, and here I am, none the worse for wear and maybe a little better than I was this morning. My mood is certainly much improved.
