To start the New Year Lori and I headed to the coast to do a hike up Neahkahnie Mt. We did stop off at Camp 18 on the way over for a New Years day breakfast and we had hope would let the day warm up some. We had a clear sunny day but it was near freezing temperatures and windy. This hike is about 8 miles and 1700 total gain but it always feels like it is further than that. This was Lori’s first hike after her surgery so it was the right one for her to start with.
