Sunday's hike through the newly snow-covered hills was quite the adventure. We traversed a couple more steep sided ravines, which in the snow was quite the challenge. We also took a more popular and marked trail to see the Eternal Flame. If you look at the image above, you will see a tiny orange light through the fallen trees. That is the Eternal Flame.

More on the flame later.
The trail is popular and well traveled, which results in a lot of packed snow and ice on top of rock-hard ground. The right side of my ass still hurts from multiple slips and falls! The frozen banks of the creek present another challenge as well - but it was well worth it.
Nature has carved out quite the scenic path on this one, including multiple waterfalls and a tiered, shale creek bed.
I will definitely be heading back during the spring thaw...
