Eighth hike of 2017 towards my challenge of 52 in this year

Today my hike was not long but it was labor filled.  I hiked for an hour in about fourteen inches of fluffy snow on snowshoes.  It was a great simulation of hiking with a thirty pound pack.  I was huffing and puffing just walking.  It was fourteen degrees and enjoyed every minute.  I did not have to worry too much about getting cold because I was working so hard to walk.  Walked into Otter Cove and then walked a little on the Otter Cove trail.  It was fun to be in the woods out of the wind for a bit.

Along the Otter Cliff Path some of the drifts were really neat
