#193.... Whitecap

The Mahoosucs

On Sunday, we hiked Whitecap after a light snow on Saturday evening. The upper section of Yellow trail had fairly thick ice and for some odd reason, I did not put on my micro-spikes. I just picked my way up, on, and around the ice to the granite slab. I suppose that's one of the dumbest hiking maneuvers I've accomplished in several years. Today, that decision feels a lot like a guy thing--you know, like not asking for directions. The only line that surfaces this morning comes from Forrest Gump: "Stupid is as stupid does." Indeed.
