Hello 2016!

"For last year's words belong to last year's language and next year's words await another voice." - T.S. Elliot

 The perfect way to ring in this New Year - a sunrise hike on Mt. Monadnock in New Hampshire. Matt and I had spent many days on this mountain in 2015, and it seemed like a fitting way to begin 2016. Probably the first year I've ever gone to bed on New Years Eve well before the midnight hour, but we do what we have to! Especially when committed to plans you made from a far enough distance to not really be concerned about things like waking up super early and hiking up a mountain through the frigid darkness. Noooooo. 

 Well, morning came, and I rallied. We saw a couple other hikers on our way up the mountain, and reached the summit with only minutes before sunrise. The plan was to enjoy an oatmeal brekkie with mimosas, but oh my it was a frozen tundra - should have brought a hydro flask of hot cocoa instead! 

 Cheers & Happy New Year!
