Description

On this bone-chilling late February morning, I set out in 0 degrees for a crystal clear pre-dawn hike, trudging approximately a mile and a half I'd say on the Mid-State Trail running along top of Tussey Mountain. Several recent storms had encased much of the mountain in snow glazed by ice. Anticipating the rising sun, I set and awaited being beaten by gusts of winds approaching -10. But as the giant ball of fire broke the horizon, kissing the icy tree branches with this wonderful glow, I felt not a shiver for a few beautiful seconds!
