On Hiking to Hugo Peak: Every mountain and hill shall be made low

Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together. Isa. xl, 1–5.
A crisp December day. Sunshine. Bonita and I were long overdue for a hike in nature. We made the perfect choice. The Pack Forest near Eatonville. Call it heavy frost or light snow, but there was white stuff on the road (gated, closed to vehicles). Bonita brought a ton of food and drink, in thermoses. She brought enough clothes to open her own thrift shop. I had to laugh at how many times she was either taking layers off or putting them back on. She was forever adjusting her stuff. We took a road up so we could be on the south facing slope of the mountain for the sunshine. Saw a group of horse and rides, A jogger with doggie ran by, too. From the road we took a short horse trail up to Hugo Peak, where we had our picnic lunch, then took the Hugo Peak trail back down to the car. It was a perfect hike.
