Weekend Wanderings: Winter Trails Day at Long Trail Brewery

We had a nice, but cold weekend! On Saturday, we headed to Long Trail Brewery for the Green Mountain Club's Winter Trails Day event, which was loads of fun. I hadn't yet been to the brewery, which was packed, and the animal tracking workshop we took forced us outside for a bit when I know we otherwise would have stayed wrapped up inside.

We learned some animal tracks and some tips on tracking while we were in the warmth of the GMC tent, and then headed out behind the brewery to test out our new skills, identifying a bunch of deer tracks, a set of red squirrel tracks, and this really cool grouse feather:

Afterward, we headed back into the brewery for beers, soup and chili, and ice cream with hot maple syrup. It was a blast to learn more about the Green Mountain Club, and even though we ended up missing quite a bit of what we'd hoped to do (there were other hikes and workshops that we intended to catch but ended up being too late for), we had a really great time and are excited to get more involved with the GMC and hiking community here!
