Here are a couple of shots taken by my hiking buddy, John Shaffer, at River Styx Park a couple of weeks ago. We meet for a sunrise hike once a week no matter the weather. This day, it was about 5 degrees when we started. I'm carrying my pooch, Casey, after he came up limping with ice balls between his toes for the second time. The first time, I thawed his foot with my ungloved hand. The hand stayed cold so the second time he limped, I figured the over the shoulder carry was better than frostbite. He didn't seem to mind!
