Spruce Mt. Hike
On a very warm New Year's Day, Cara, Cynthia, George, Paul, Bert and I trudged up the mountain. Soft snow underfoot gave way to water and slush over ice on the ledgy areas. Those with traction devices did fine; those of us without struggled to stay upright. At the top we climbed the tower, the steps being ice-free. After toasting the new year we headed down again. Here's Paul's trivia question: Spruce Mt. is in L. R. Jones State Forest. So who was L. R. Jones?
