Special Thanks to Guest Trip Reporter EWB:

Even the dogs were anxious to get things rolling Thursday night as TNAB assembled alongside Homestead Road beside Change Creek to kick off the 2012 season. A good sized crew of regulars and one newcomer geared up, caught up, and eventually headed up, first to the John Wayne trail, then over to the Change Creek trail, and finally up the switchbacks to the ridge in ever deepening snow at an ever slowing pace. At the Hall Point junction we offered our righteous trailblazer Andy graham crackers and “encouragement” as he kicked, plowed, and swam a waist-deep trench for us to the top. There we found good weather, snowy views, and strong booze, and just enough room to mill about taking pictures and treating dogs. The descent was quick and painless, if a little tipsy for some (cough, cough). Lights on at the railroad grade as we counted heads, then a¬†short final bit to the cars. All but a couple made their way to the Pour House after to celebrate the new TNAB season. There we shared more food, booze, and stories, and ZeusDaddy unleashed some medieval ping pong on EWB as revenge for losing the first game. It was a most excellent start to the new TNAB year!
