The warmer temperature prompted me to take Tok up on Old Womens, a popular trail that can be accessed from Aviation Hill housing (CG housing). In hindsight, I should have worn my snow shoes, but I ascended with only a few falls into the snow drifts. Tok took a couple of spills, too. Having learned to hike with me on a 8 foot leash, I graduated him to a 15 foot lead. This bright red leash gives him some freedom to stop and sniff and still stay ahead of me- a must for his husky nature. He likes to lead. I told you: he is my dog, through and through.
Old Womens gave way to some spectacular views of our town, the ranges that surround us, some eagles, and the ever-present Barometer. Enjoy.
Looking back at Kodiak.
