Early in the morning, and it’s time to gather for the New Year! Pinehurst Idaho is the place to be!!

Half of the group went to the top. The other half headed for the obstacles. We went for the obstacles. Good choice, as the snow was so deep up top that they had to turn back.

Fearless leader got stuck!
