The hike to Deer Mountain was an attempt at starting the hiking season early. I knew there would be snow, and there would be snow, but I wanted to see if starting that early was something for me; as it turns out it is not. I'm not a big fan of hiking-snowshoeing, it's just not my thing. For the type of hiking I do April is too early to start the season.
