Hike 1 of 2019

We have been super inspired by our new friends @fridalou84 (and Baxter, too) who completed the 2018 52 Hike Challenge, so we decided to keep better track of our hikes this year. Tootsie is 13 and as a senior doggy, it's a bit much to set big goals (and, geez, at her age, does she really have to feel the tyranny of New Year's resolutions?); however, since we hike all the time, we will continue to share where we go in 2019. I'm sure Tube of Fur will get carried a lot! I think one parameter of these hikes is that Tube of Fur has to come along and the hike should be a minimum of three miles.

Here is hike #1 of 2019: Passo Gandiolo, Liguria, Italy (in the hills above Genova).

🐾 Dogs met: Bilbo (yes, Baggins is his last name) & Lulu.

There was a fascinating man-made earth structure called a neviera, which was a pit dug into the ground and when it filled with snow, it was used as a freezer. Now it basically looks like a bulldozer took a chunk out of the ground, but the edges of the hole are smooth, and as the picture shows, it used to have a little freezer house on top.
