Green Mountain is one of my favorite proving grounds, and a fantastic benchmark for climbing fitness at threshold. It is also a beautiful trail with spectacular views from the summit. Some days I go to Green to trash my legs and try to make myself vomit from exertion by the summit, a roughly ~40 minute or so climb. This wasn't one of those days. Ms Matwijiw joined me for a comfortable jaunt up and over our mountain through Chautauqua on a perfect winter day.
Apologies for the soundtrack here yesterday and today. Apparently the Playlist.com widget I had been using for three years changed unexpectedly without my knowledge to some gangster rap that I didn't realize was up until this afternoon. Strange. Consequently I removed the playlist widget.
